    Default enforcing this?

    not sure how this can be enforced - are we so powerful a nation now that we can enforce our laws outside the US?


    "The measure would force U.S. financial institutions to cooperate with federal law enforcement authorities in shutting down illegal gambling sites based outside the United States…" (taken from the casinocitytimes news article)

    I'm OK it would be a real nightmare to enforce this, but since all the US money involved in online casinos starts from US (with credit cards, like depositing in your casino account, or funding Neteller via a wire), they may shut down a good part of the cash flow. I may miss something, but I think it works like this.

    That's the worst scenario possible, so let's keep our fingers crossed and watch the final match.
