Make sure to send us any press releases you have, and we'll see to it that they're placed right where the CAP community can see them.

Will the EU Object to UIGEA?
In the course of the article, Lehrer calls the UIGEA legislation among "the worst written sections of the United States Code," most likely because of its awkward construction -- the law requires financial institutions to police Internet gaming because the government simply isn't able. That places an unreasonable obligation on institutions that have no interest in acting as a police or regulatory force, nor the ability or resources to do so.
Lehrer goes on to speculate that the EU's dissatisfaction with UIGEA may be part of a formal Trade Barriers Regulation complaint, which is reportedly already in the works.
"A series of 'interrogatories' -- formal questions directed at American officials -- appears to show what will come," writes Lehrer. "The questions cover topics ranging from the way the United States has enforced laws to the size of the U.S. gambling industry. Running almost 5,000 words, the list of questions reads more like the outline of a legal brief rather than a simple set of inquiries. It asks for every detail of the operations of the U.S. gaming industry and asks U.S. regulators to justify nearly every action they've taken with regard to Internet gambling."
" ... Since enforcement of the gambling laws falls almost entirely on the banking sector, it appears likely that the EU could well respond with banking sanctions directed at getting the U.S. to change its behavior. ... Given the enormous volume of trade between the U.S. and Europe, almost $700 billion in 2007, even a tiny series of retaliatory measures would have severe implications for the U.S. economy."

Remember: Knowledge is power!
Whether you know it or not, the potential success for your affiliate marketing program is directly affected by a wide range of factors, from local laws and foreign markets, and, (unfortunately!) good old fashioned politics. In other words, it's best to stay informed -- and there's no better way to do just that than checking out the latest industry news each and every day in the CAP newsroom.
