    Very interesting article in the NYT about Google and Yahoo announcing that they will be ending all gambling ads due to pressure from the feds.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2004/04/05/te...y/05yahoo.html

    What I wonder is whether the feds will now start going over the vast numbers of sites that have gambling affiliate ads on them. Many of these sites that have these ads aren't even gambling oriented - but instead usually just have 1-2 small banners thrown in on the bottom of the page.

    Will having even a single banner on your page be construed as "aiding and abetting" illegal gambling??

    Also, how is the World Trade Organization ruling going to play into this whole thing??

    It's sad, because a lot of the free tracking sites were supported by the gambling banners. Now you will have to pay for good tracking.

    I guess the banner exchanges will suffer too.

    Get used to pulling links to any lead fee verticle embraced by spammers. The cybercrime units and deceived consumers will demand the casino -pill pushers and any identity theft operations get closed down. They start the pressures at the SE's legal departments to shut down the merchant posers and cybercriminals.
