But you are an Accessory and Aiding and Abetting such illegal processing of funds. The start of the process and click through your website clearly define you as such.

That makes you as guilty as the banks and financial institutions.

Just know once again if found guilty you are looking at jail time.

Not really. We do not take bets nor place the bets, we do not take nor process the money. What we do is provide reviews on all online casinos ( whether they USA friendly or not ) . Kind of like tripadvisor does for hotels, restaurants etc

Furthermore UIGEA does not prohibits online marketing, advertising nor affiliation. And since it is NOT illegal for the USA citizens to play online, then how can it be illegal to provide them with the reviews on where to play online?

It would be illegal to have a website that tells you where all the hookers are and their price and a getting a kickback for sending people there.

Where would it be illegal? What if all of the hookers are in northern Nevada? Do I have exposure if I market my website to residents of Clark County?

If I'm a guy in Europe where online gambling is legal and I'm marketing online casinos based in places where online gambling is legal, at what point do I get to stop caring who accesses my globally-available website? (and from where they access it)

Really, all you do is to " provide reviews on all online casinos"

Where do I find the reviews.

Deck,

I read the other thread before, and what you're asking here, and I feel I must caution you. Not so much on the question itself, but your attitude is approaching trolling, especially in phrasing your question in a way that reads like a self-appointed Judge-Jury-Executioner, carried over quoting yourself from another thread where you were also being a bit rude. I'm not a lawyer, so I can't say definitively what's illegal, but your stance seems strictly one of opinion and interpretation, and quite subjective in your interpretation of UIGEA.

As to LCB's reviews, there are write-ups on a couple thousand B&M casinos on the website; you might start here and drill down to any casino they have listed worldwide. Each has some commentary, member ratings, member comments, and pictures if available. They also review online casinos; but I don't use online casinos, so haven't spent any time looking at those reviews. Look at the black menu bar (2 rows) at the top of the home page to find them.

I think an apt analogy might be the convenience store that sells cigarettes that you saw advertised somewhere. You get lung cancer; do you sue the store for selling them to you? The magazine that accepts tobacco ads? The company that made the billboard? I guess you can, but you're wasting your money on attorney fees.

I'm still not convinced it was ever about "legal", it was whether they wanted to get you and whether the law was, sort of close, so the justice department could use it as an excuse to bury you with or without it actually being legal. But I'm also not a lawyer. I was a poker player who took a huge hit when it passed, but I was too angry to keep up with all the details. I've always thought the law made online gambling illegal on a federal level _if_ it was illegal on a state level and they used that to shut down everyone, even those who were trying to comply.
