OK, we all thought, as did most everyone else, that the EU "sold out" in the negotiations with the US on online gambling. Did it?
The Remote Gambling Association file a WTO complaint in which:
|forces an investigation by the E.U. for “discriminatory enforcement as an illegal barrier to trade.” and it is filed under the EU Trade Barriers Regulation. If the investigation proves to show any discrimination, the EU can negotiate again with the U.S. or proceed with a WTO case.
If this gets followed up with, the EU could have its cake and eat it too. They got much wanted trade relieve and now can still arbitrate on online gambling.
Wishful thinking or very smart??
