    Default advertising debate in South Africa

    South Africa is in the midst of a debate about how to handle Internet gambling advertising rules.

    It is proposed that only licensed interactive gambling providers may advertise, the minister having powers to control the manner and form of advertising.

    A major debate has now ensued as to the nature of the advertising to be allowed, if such is to be allowed at all, according to the recommendation of some provincial mandates, or whether just to allow providers to advertise, which, says the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), might be considered discriminatory.

    The DTI has now agreed to return to a further meeting of the same committee with "a formulation that is recommended on the subject by both DTI and the state law advisers on the subject".

    According to a programme just issued by the Economic and Foreign Affairs Select Committee, the next NCOP meeting on the subject of the Gambling Amendment Bill will be on 13 February 2008.

    Its actually pretty hard to believe that Governments are not smart enough to realzie that all of the benefits associated with making internet gambling legal, licensed, taxed, etc far outweigh the alternatives. Its just plain crazy that we are in 2008 and going through the same crap that we were in 2000
