Online gaming ban angered poker player in Norway Last Friday the Norwegian parliament adopted a law which makes it online players from Norway bans on online gambling sites to raise money to play.

Similar to the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIEGA) in the United States should be the Norwegian players in fact be denied to online sites use real money. This is achieved by the finance company transactions with the prohibited sites. The ban should not, however, before mid-2009 to come into force so that the players still have a kind of grace period given. The European Commission has strongly opposed the legislation and it could be that the law therefore tumble.

Norway is not in the EU but a member of the so-called European Economic Area, in which approximately 80% of the EU internal market rules apply. For the monitoring and compliance with these regulations is the European Court's jurisdiction. The EEA Agreement is regularly on the development of relevant EU legislation adjusted. There are voices in Norway, claiming that the ban was implemented only to the state lottery company Norsk Tipping and to protect its monopoly on cement.

The company belongs to the government and thus show remarkable parallels with the seizure of online gaming domains in the U.S. states of Kentucky. Even then, it seems rather to financial interests of the government to go than to the protection of individuals against the harmful effects of gambling.
