DLA Piper Launches 'All In' Blog Dedicated to International Gambling Law
On its Twitter feed today, law firm DLA Piper announced that its "Gaming" practice has launched a new blog called "All In" that will offer legal and regulatory updates on a seemingly underserved topic: international gambling law.
Looking at the blog's 13 named contributors, All In appears to largely be the work of lawyers in the firm's U.K. offices, with a handful of lawyers from other European countries and the U.S. also involved. Indeed, the first 10 or so posts on All In cover gambling law developments in countries including the U.K., Italy and Germany.
Recent posts on All In discuss topic including:
- the award of 2,000 new Italian betting shop licenses;
- the status of proposed guidelines in the U.K. on whether TV game shows such as "Deal or no Deal" are games of chance requiring licenses under the Gambling Act of 2005; and
- a video by DLA Piper associate Giulio Coraggio analyzing current developments in online gaming in Italy.
Overall, All In looks like a solid effort in the gambling blawg area by DLA Piper, which now produces 12 different blogs.
