From the PPA:
We have just received word from our attorneys in Kentucky that Judge Thomas Wingate has ruled against us on all points. In his conclusion he orders the 141 online gaming sites to geographically block and prove that they have done so before the Commonwealth of Kentucky will release ownership of their domain names.
(Funny-ironic that I put up my first affiliate link in like forever shortly before this decision?)
UPDATE: In addition to Kentucky’s semi-unprecedented action, Turkey is blocking websites left and right, China is cracking down at internet cafes, and it appears that net freedom will not be an issue of any weight in the homestretch of this election season.
MEANWHILE: Italy has updated its laws and just granted a license to PokerStars.
