Major press release site forced to stop taking online gambling clients

by , Apr 20, 2009 | 7:55 am

For those that wanted to promote their latest and greatest promotions for their online sites, PRWeb was one of the better places to go for your press release needs. However, PRWeb is located in Washington state, which has a law saying that playing online gambling is a Class C felony. This apparently wasn’t a problem until last week, when the Washington State Gambling Commission apparently sent a cease and desist letter to PRWeb, telling them to knock it off. The Casino City Times and many other sites surely will have more news as this develops.

    Very interesting … I wonder if there will be a dot-net vs. dot-com issue.

    Also interesting that Washington State seems to be trying to show they’re willing to enforce the law in some capacity. I wonder what’s behind that. They’re treading dangerously close to the kinda free-speech territory that could get a court to declare something unconstitutional.
