    Default Sportsbook.com the latest to change domain name

    Sportsbook.com joined Bookmaker.com and Bodog.com this week as the latest sportsbook to change its domain name. Sportsbook.com is now known as Sportsbook.ag. Bookmaker.com is now Bookmaker.ag, and Bodog.com is now Bodog.eu.

    From Gambling911.com:

    For those of you who think this is all a big waste of time, itís not. A law was recently passed in the US that basically allows law enforcement to seize .com and .net domain names if they are found to be in violation of US laws. Both extensions are US-based.

    While the initial rationale for this law stemmed from illegal copyright infringement websites, US law enforcement has expanded its efforts into the online gambling sector beginning with seizures of the domain names for the three largest US-facing Internet poker rooms: PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and UB.com.

    It's the TLD for Antigua and Barbuda which they probably see as gambling friendly. Makes sense, especially as sportsbook.com... er I mean sportsbook.ag aren't licensed in the EU, so they probably want to stay away from EU TLDs, just in case.
