July's issue of the World Online Gambling Law Report

The GB PoC regime legal saga continues this month, as our lead news analysis story covers the decision by the UK High Court to refer to the CJEU for a ruling on a number of European law issues relating to the legality of the Finance Act 2014, which implemented the PoC tax in the UK and which is the primary target of the judicial review brought by the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association. 

Elsewhere, Warwick Bartlett of Global Betting and Gaming Consultants outlines the obstacles standing in the way of pooled poker liquidity for online poker, and discusses some of the options for bringing the dream of pooled liquidity - long suggested as a potential saviour of online poker - into reality. 

Lawyer Henrik Norsk Hoffmann presents his opinion on some of the concerns about the Danish market, as the so-called 'Danish Model' of online gambling regulation faces some criticisms, particularly in the light of the departure of Ladbrokes. 

Richard van Schaik and Robin de Wit of DLA Piper provide an analysis of the preparations for the reform of the Dutch online gambling market, and describe the role of the Dutch gaming regulator in the period since the reforms were put forward and today.

PLUS: Brazil's sports betting law - PokerStars toughens its player assistance software policies - Portugal's market opens up but concerns remain - changes to advertising regulation for operators offering into the UK - Spain's DGOJ presents its review of 2014 - the Austrian gaming monopoly is criticised again.
