Online Gambling Legal Compliance a Growing Sector

Published Friday, March 13, 2009 -

While many of us know a little bit about online gambling not very many of us know a great deal. It is a virtual world that seems constantly in flux. New opportunities are springing up on the internet for firms specializing in online legal matters and internet research. These firms are offering in depth analysis on everything from soup to nuts. One such company on the net is law firm Weston, Garrou, Walters & Mooney which is dedicated to providing legal guidance on cases focusing on free speech, censorship, gambling sites and a host of other first amendment concerns.
The firm is equipped to evaluate the legality of online gaming promotions and business relationships providing critical legal information necessary to evaluate the potential risks and rewards. The web site for this outfit is packed with information regarding promotion and advertizing, affiliate contracts, gaming law advice, and a legal compliance review.

Larry Walters, managing partner of the firm stated "The U.S. government has taken a stance that anything that happens in cyberspace falls under federal law. The state does not have the constitutional right to pass laws that affect international commerce and that includes anything over the internet." Obviously Larry Walters is an advocate for the online gambling industry, but his business and passion is protecting the right to express oneself freely without fear of government repercussion.

Mr. Walters suggested that individual states may be instrumental in advancing online gambling interests since they are struggling financially and will be looking for revenue from any source they can, including possibly online gambling. Mr. Walters will be an upcoming speaker at the Game Developers Conference March 23 to 27, 2009 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco California he will be focusing on censorship.

On the law firm web site a quote from Albert Einstein sums up things perfectly, " Laws alone cannot secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be tolerance in the entire population."
