    Default French court overturns Internet gambling monopoly

    France's highest court has ruled that France cannot ban a Maltese company from offering Internet wagers on horse racing. The EU has already been pressuring France to end its monopoly, and this just adds to it, Reuters reports.

    The problem with France is that they like to ( think that they...) rule Europe but do not like to follow the EU rules, if they do not like them. So they are the first to complain and put pressure on a country when this is about a rule that they follow, but they are the first not to follow many of these rules. The gambling monopole is only ONE example....

    And this would not be their first court appearance neither... (France regularly appear in the EU court for many and different cases) at the end of the day, they always do what they want... and this no-power-EU pressure is only a very casual political excercise for France !

    And no french court will go against that for sure... I am almost certain that this action will lead to another dead end...

    i think we have already turned the corner... for years there was so much fear about if online gambling might be banned. then in the last year there have been real rough roads with the us and eu regaring bannining online gambling and the impact it had on the business was far greater than most everyone expected. finally, i think we have turned the corner and we should be hearing more good news such as this in the months and years to come. in the end, it only makes sense to regulate and tax it. that is in the best interest of the masses.

    momo14..if you live in US then look up some of the 2008 presidential candidates. Some candidates (I believe Ron Paul may be one of them) want to legalize online gambling (or let the decission be left up to the state government, not the federal)
