Legality of on the internet sports betting
Legal aspects of online sports gambling are complex. Two federal laws, the Wire Act and Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), make matters even more confusing for businesses involved in sports gambling. The Wire Act prohibits transmitting wagering information across interstate channels while the UIGEA makes it illegal to accept payments related to unlawful Internet gambling activities; The Department of Justice had asserted that the latter applied to sports wagering; however, the Fifth Circuit Court disagreed and invalidated this claim in United States v.
