    Interesting Gambling Related Link
    Saw a link on a different forum, thought it was interesting, a 'live' transcript of the proceedings in Kentucky regarding the Governor's attempted seizure of 141 gambling related domains....

    This is not a gambling related matter... it is a free Internet matter

    If any government can seize domain names because of a perceived infraction of their local laws.. what is to stop oppressive governments from seizing the domain names of Google, Yahoo?

    What is to stop the seizure of domain names of womens rights sites in countries where women have no rights?

    The list goes on... the implications here far outstreach the narrow interests of the gaming community.

    I won't be surprised if it goes all the way to SCOTUS before it's overwith.
