February's issue of the World Online Gambling Law Report covers a range of developments across the global online gambling landscape. Highlights include an detailed account of the International Association of Gaming Regulators ('IAGR') attempts to develop technical standardisation and harmonisation across the global gambling landscape from Birgitte Sand, President of the IAGR and Director of the Danish Gambling Authority. Birgitte provides details on the current projects being undertaken by the IAGR and the need to find common ground in the attempt to harmonise technical standards and regulations.
Pierre Tournier, Consultant at Instinctif Partners, dissects the agreed text of the EU's Fourth Money Laundering Directive with a particular focus on the recent changes following the trilogue discussions and what these changes mean for the online gambling industry. Jas Purewal of interactive entertainment law firm Purewal & Partners LLP examines the Gambling Commission's recent report on social gaming and what the report means from a legal perspective for both the gambling and video games industries.
February's issue also features an in-depth article on the use of geolocation technology in the US, the nuances between the adoption of such technologies in New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware, and the differing levels of involvement by state regulators. In addition to this we finish the issue with a look at the regulatory challenges and pending legal decisions in Germany that will shape the direction of Germany's online gambling market in the coming year.
