February'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 November last year the GB Gambling Commission announced a new, consumer-focused direction in its enforcement policy, asking the industry to look keenly at 'raising standards.' This new direction has now led to a consultation paper from the Commission on its enforcement strategy. In this month's issue, David Clifton of Clifton Davies Consultancy Ltd takes a look at the paper and where it fits into the wider context of the Commission's enforcement policy.

This month's publication also has something of an Iberian focus: Albert Agustinoy of Cuatrecasas discusses a key concern in the Spanish gaming sector at present, that of contractual issues involved when operators void player bets or even close player accounts. Meanwhile, Joao Alfredo Afonso of Morais Leitao, Galvao Teles, Soares da Silva analyses Portugal's new Regulation on shared online liquidity, which was finally notified to the European Commission earlier this year.
