ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the debate over the U.S. Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. It is noted that the law, passed and signed by U.S. President George W. Bush, blocks financial institutions from accepting payments from credit cards, checks or electronic fund transfers to settle online wagers. According to the author, banks and financial institutions complained as the law failed to define what constitutes illegal gambling.
