ABSTRACT
The article reports that attorney generals from 29 U.S. states have expressed serious concerns about the impact of the World Trade Organization's (WTO) landmark ruling on Internet gaming. In a letter sent in May 2005 to the U.S. Ambassador to the WTO, the attorney generals called for the U.S. to take the unprecedented step of withdrawing the gaming sector from the country's commitment to the General Agreement on Trade in Services. The signatories also expressed concern about the impact of the ruling on the right of U.S. states to regulate in a range of service sectors beyond gambling.
