Join as at the CAP Forum to discuss.

Most in the industry are confident that this action is a direct result of the heightened feeling of risk international companies are sensing in the U.S. market due to UIGEA and, more recently, the successful action of Kentucky to seize 141 online gambling-related domain names.
