EU Online Gambling Vote Coming Soon
There has been a lot of discussion and some disagreement amongst members of the European Parliament regarding the question of online gambling legislation. There are different opinions as to whether the European Union member states should continue to legislate their own online gambling, or whether Internet gambling in the EU should be regulated and legislated by the European Commission. A few months ago, in March, Jürgen Creutzmann, a liberal member of the European Parliament from Germany, issued a Green Paper regarding the issue of European online gambling legislation. Creutzmann supports closer cooperation of EU states with regards to Internet gambling legislation, however, he does not feel that there has to be single law for all Internet gambling. Jürgen Creutzmann had the following to say: “Member states alone are not in a position to regulate all areas of Internet gambling. Much expanded cooperation between national regulatory bodies is therefore essential.” There have already been many responses to the Green Paper regarding the relevant issues about the European Union’s online gambling legislation. A vote will be taking place on 19th September 2011. If there is agreement on how the decision regarding online gambling should be worded, there will be another vote taking place on 12th October 2011. This second vote will then ratify the European Union’s online gambling legislation. There are, however, very strong arguments on both sides of the issue of online gambling regulation for the European Union member states. There are those that feel the industry need not be regulated by the European Commission, and others who feel that there should be serious restrictions imposed on players, including online gambling limits, warning messages, and more. Still others believe that each member state should be allowed to control its own online gambling legislation.
