March's edition of Online Gambling Lawyer

Our relaunched publication Online Gambling Lawyer - formerly known as World Online Gambling Law Report - covers the key legal/regulatory developments in the online gambling sector on a global basis. Each month the publication delivers in-depth news analysis and features written by industry experts, for experts, on topics such as eSports gambling, licensing, AML compliance, enforcement, and more.

In January this year the European Commission unveiled the draft ePrivacy Regulation, to replace the current ePrivacy Directive. This draft contains a number of points of interest for online gambling operators, for example in relation to cookie compliance. Anne Rogers and Simon Halberstam of Simons Muirhead & Burton LLP describe the proposed changes and suggest how operators might prepare in this edition.

Elsewhere, Andrew Tait of Gordon Dadds discusses the fall-out from the Wayne Shaw pie-eating incident, in which Shaw, at that time reserve goalkeeper for Sutton Utd FC, ate a pie on the touchline during a match, and later admitted that he was aware that Sun Bets had 8-1 odds that he would eat the pie in such circumstances. Andrew examines the regulatory repercussions and what this means for the novelty bets sector.
