Being Rescheduled

Overview:

The market for unregulated gaming, and especially social gaming and online “games of skill,” has grown exponentially in recent years. Operators generally claim that no consideration is paid to participate in social gaming or that skill-based games (as opposed to chance-based games) are not a gambling activity and, therefore, they are not subject to various gambling regulations and licensing requirements. But the line between gambling and non-gambling activities is often blurry, and the standards, which change from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, are not well-defined, leaving operators potentially exposed. In recent years, some cases have been decided adversely to operators. And, as the market grows, there is greater regulatory scrutiny, and more lawsuits are being filed — by state regulators and private lawyers — challenging both social gaming and skill-based games as illegal gaming.

Join experienced gaming attorney Adam Marchuk (Perkins Coie LLP) as he explores that state of the law on key issues faced by online gaming operators, delves into the most up-to-date developments in litigation and enforcement, and looks as where things are likely to go in the future.
