legal experts discuss changing regulatory dynamics boscon2017by Joker 08.09.2017 0 comments
At this year’s Betting On Sports conference, which takes place at London’s Olympia on September 13-15, a prestige panel of legal experts will pull focus on the latest regulatory trends affecting the industry in 2017.
During the event, lawyer and notary Tal Itzhak Ron, Chairman and CEO of Tal Ron, Drihem & Co. law firm, will discuss Europe’s evolving regulatory landscape, along with the growing importance of liability management.
“Online betting continues to grow at an explosive rate without any territorial borders,” Ron told SBC News, on his way to London from Tel Aviv. “The trend today is towards regulation, even for affiliates and platform providers. Nowadays, many jurisdictions are trying to keep unlicensed operators out of their market by restricting gaming offering.
According to Ron, gaming regulators are using “every imaginable measure” to enforce local gaming regulation by blacklisting operators, penalising players, ISP blocking, payment blocking and affiliate blocking measures.
“Gaming platform providers have been asked to monitor the traffic on their platforms and block unlicensed gaming operators,” he said. “There have even been talks that gaming suppliers could be held liable for offences committed by unlicensed gaming operators using the suppliers’ platform.”
Ron, a general member of International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL), will be attending this year’s BOS 2017 with two senior members from his team, Maayan M. Dana and Stephanie Attias, all of whom will be on hand to answer delegates’ questions from their booth in the exhibition floor.
“At Tal Ron, Drihem & Co, we focus specifically on legal, regulatory and banking consultancy, for gaming companies, financial websites and affiliates, providing all-inclusive ongoing services,” stated Attias and Dana.
“Tal Ron, Drihem &Co. has always been at the tip of the latest regulatory updates. We pride ourselves in being the only gaming law firm in the jurisdiction recommended by Dun and Bradstreet and BDI and the one having the largest market share.”
