The Remote Gambling Association, which represents the largest remote gambling companies in Europe, has filed a complaint against the United States, alleging discrimination and violation of international trade law. The London-based association is asserting that the U.S. Department of Justice is in violation of international trade law by taking enforcement actions against foreign online gaming operators while allowing activity by domestic online gaming operators. Earlier this year, the World Trade Organization ruled that the United States violated trade rules in barring Antiguan online gaming operators from the U.S. market. The United States then withdrew its WTO obligations in regard to free trade in the gambling area. A few days ago, the European Union and several other countries agreed to a trade deal with the United States over the withdrawal of market access, but the compensation package did not address legal issues. Last year, the United States cracked down on online gambling by passing the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, which led to losses for the European gambling companies operating in the United States.
