    Default Will BossMedia cease its operation?

    I've found this thread on 2plus2forums and then an article on CardPlayer about BossMedia servers being seized as a result of the court decision

    So BossMedia will no longer have their license valid and the IPN network sites are going to get closed? among IPN pokerrooms there virginpoker, pokerheaven, betclicpoker and other

    or does that mean that IPN and Bossmedia will just lose their maltese license?

    has anyone ever heard about the Pokertrillion - www.pokertrillion.com? He is the plaintiff in this case

    It is worried some that a small player like pokertrillion can force a Giant like IPN network (Boss) to fear for its license. Just strange that a judge decides and don't allow for any appeals.

    On the other hand we dont really know what the complaints was about, will be interesting to see the result of this. As mentioned by Alex over at CAP, you wonder why not the main news media is bringing this up.

    well in the article it was mentioned that BossMedia violated some kind of an agreement between them and pokertrillion most likely - but there is nothing clear actually regarding what exactly happened.

    Here's the statement from Boss Media:


    Boss Media assures player funds and no disruption in services
    In relation to the statements made by Poker Trillion August 18 (“Trillion Limited -v- Boss Media Poker Malta Limited and Boss Media AB”), Boss Media has issued the following statement.

    Poker Trillion’s recent comments are a reckless attempt to support a legal action that is without merit and initiated as retribution for their dismissal from the Boss Media network. To be clear, player funds are not affected by the current proceedings. All players’ funds are held separately under the control of the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority and cannot be seized by any court.

    Poker Trillion is a former customer of Boss Media who was terminated because of rake back violations. They have since then repeatedly tried to disrupt the Boss Media business through the dissemination of groundless rumors. In April 2008 Poker Trillion alleged in a press release a claim that among other things, Boss Media player funds were frozen. The allegations were false but typical of the type of tactics employed by Poker Trillion.

    While there has been no hearing on the merits of the Poker Trillion suit, there have been preliminary hearings on the matter. Boss Media has assured that adequate security is provided in Malta in the event of an award of damages against it which we believe to be unlikely.

    Boss Media is currently exploring various legal options regarding our Maltese assets and can assure that Boss Media has the requisite assets in place to ensure that our business will continue to operate with the highest standards. In the extremely unlikely event that any Malta operations would be affected, Boss Media have high-performance back-up systems in place to ensure continued service to all our customers and their players.

    FYI -- We're trying to verify the Poker Trillion claims (rather than rely just on their statement). When we get more information on the court proceedings, we'll post it here.
