Desktop Conference: Jurisdictional Integrity

6 August 2002

It has been argued for years that geographic borders mean nothing on the Internet. But while legislators, regulators, operators and suppliers continue to grapple with jurisdictional integrity, Tim Ryan maintains that borders can be enforced online and that Internet gambling can be taxed and regulated accordingly. With 10 years of experience developing wagering technology as the general manager of Seven Network’s teletext and datacast services, Ryan has established himself as an expert on cross-jurisdictional issues as they pertain to interactive betting. In the latest edition of IGN's Desktop Conference series, Ryan and IGN publisher Sue Schneider discuss cross-border Internet gambling issues in Europe and Australia as well as the future for I-gaming policy in the United States. The audio interview is available at IGN in RealAudio format.
