ABSTRACT
The article reports that the European Commission has urged France to allow foreign operators to take bets online or face legal action in connection to the country's draft law on online gambling. The Commission cited that the law violated Article 49 of the Treaty of Rome which guarantees the right of service providers from member states to trade freely across the European Union. The draft law requires banks to block money transfers to and from gambling Web sites and to and from gamblers.
