Kentucky scores another domain commy take over

What is the world is going on when a hick state can grab a business domain name? Well I for one think this will open a floodgate of issues like we have never seen in the Internet marketing side. Whats next after casinos?

 The domain www.goldencasino.com is the latest domain turned over to these idiots, although it still works you can see the whois is going to the commonwealth of Kentucky. I am simply amazed.

Litigation floodgates for the .com industry in hand

Well today is the day that Gov. Steve Beshear of Kentucky will get his answer from the judge as he attempts to obtain the ownership of 141 more Online Gambling domain names to The Commonwealth of Kentucky to “protect the people of Kentucky” . Well he also stated that he really wants to protect the Horse racing industry of Kentucky as well as the land based casinos and lottery mainly but he is also concerned about the people I guess?Â

The historic presence of this case is huge, if he succeeds where does it go next? If he is permitted to get the 141 names (he already has obtained 2 that were no longer in use but on his list) where does it end? The domain names in question are form licensed operators in different countries, with domain registration legally obtained outside of the United States. This sounds so amazingly impossible that I feel stupid writing this article but this is happening, happening TODAY, NOW.. well you get the idea.

If this case is not thrown out of court and laughed at by the presiding justice what is next? Will all adult sites be taken over by a state or church that claims the content is not suitable for people or children in their district? What about the businesses destroyed by taking away the number one identifier? Are all news sites next if they report a story that makes the public obtain an opinion that others do not want?

 Its bad enough we are loosing ground to China in many aspects, but we do not need to become China. This is an attempt at censorship, plain and simple but I bet the complacent public of the United States will just utter the old “well that’s too bad but I am not effected” quote we are all accustomed to at this point.

Communists hit Kentucky – Web sensorship

In a move that is absolutely astonishing, Gov. Steve Beshear in a means to protect the horse racing and lottery monopoly, along with the commonwealth of Kentucky has taken over the ownership of an online gambling web site stating they are breaking the laws of 50 states by offering online gambling. Not only is Online Gambling not breaking any state laws unless your in the repressed state of Washington, seizing domain names to sensor the Internet is pure Communism. I hope this causes such a backlash in Kentucky this jackass never sees another day of legislation and turns into a jobless lowlife he is.

Now you say you never heard of the site in question, LuckyPyramidCasino.com but that was one of 150 domain names they want to seize including bodoglife, allslots and others all having a major stake in online gambling world wide. If the US is permitted to take control of these domains and sensor the American people on how they are to live their lives then I say its past due for a revolution our founding fathers would be proud of.

Here is a list image of the domains to be attacked.

US bail out plan, could the death of the UIGEA be involved?

Well this is a personal opinion but Barney Frank has some serious pull all of a sudden. As the house financial leader he is now looking straight into the bail out plan for wall-street valued at 700 Billion, OMG that’s a big number and that includes MY tax money as well as all other Americans. I hate to bail out any corporation or greedy ass wallstreet folks but the economy needs fixed or we all go broke I guess.

Getting back to the point, with barney frank presiding over this bill, how hard would it be to slip in an end to the UIGEA as its another must pass bill. You know my stance on “slipping” something onto a bill but this would be a double negative making a real positive no? With Frank’s attempts at passing a bill to eradicate the UIGEA as its a complete joke and Bordon on the banking industry, it seems almost for sure he will add text to regulate gaming online or at least wipe out this stupid addition to the port security act.

 All we can do is hope something decent comes of this fiasco, maybe a moment of silence or a few thousand emails to Frank to let him know this is a good idea!Â

Barney Frank’s new anti UIGEA bill passes House Committee

September 12, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — Online gambling in the United States is in the headlines again as the week closes, with a new political initiative by House Committee on Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (Democrat of Massachusetts). His Payments System Protection Act of 2008, just introduced, seeks to push federal authorities on a more precise definition of exactly what constitutes “illegal” Internet gambling in terms of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and supporting regulations — a long-standing bone of contention for the congressman.

Ultimate Bet takes customers for 75 MILLION according to MSNBC

MSNBC reports – Allegations that cheaters manipulated the software powering a leading Internet poker site so they could see their opponents’ hole cards have triggered a $75 million claim against a Canadian company, msnbc.com has learned.

The alleged subterfuge on UltimateBet.com — one of the 10 top poker sites — is the biggest known case of fraud targeting an Internet gambling site and its customers, according to the company that owns the site. It is similar to a case of cheating that occurred last year on UltimateBet’s sister site, AbsolutePoker.com, but this time the thieves ran the scheme for far longer — at least from January 2005 to January 2008, it said.

EU Gambling partners to wage war

Finally the EU is growing a set and will challenge the US, the DOJ and WTO in the banning of online gambling in the free trade agreements set way back when. The organization of European gambling partners is looking at the same terms Antigua used in filing a WTO suite. Claiming unfair practice and unlawful extradition of EU citizens accused of breaking a non existent law. The UIGEA is a law yes, but it has no definable terms such as “What in the hell is illegal online gambling” as the law states its illegal, but does not state what it is. I hope the US gets beat up over this and looses in WTO sanctions so the people of this country will wake the hell up already!
