    Default Germany says Internet gambling ban is impossible to enforce ...

    ... so its Administrative Court of Appeals overturned a lower court ruling which prohibited Bwin from providing German citizens with Internet gambling services.

    From the Register ...

    The ruling focused on what the court described as the practical impossibility of enforcing a ban on internet gambling - the impossibility of which rendered the law for all intents and purposes "null and void".
    Time is on the gamblers' side in this debate, and Europe is clearly taking the lead in liberalizing the internet gaming market in all its guises, leaving the US flailing around for some kind of direction. From an international perspective, the further liberalization of the EU gambling market and the increased transparency that that implies will only strengthen the EU's hand in its WTO demands against the US.

    With each passing month, the hard-line Department of Justice approach seems increasingly anachronistic.
