The article discusses the response of online gambling supporters on a Kentucky circuit court ruling that orders owners of 141 domain names to appear at a hearing. It furthers that if the owners of domains such as Sportsbook.com and Playersonly.com fail to appear or prove that they block Kentucky gambling traffic, their domains will be forfeited to the state. However, there are many laws in the state that referenced in the prosecution of Internet gambling cases predate the Internet or do not directly address the Internet.
