Online Gambling Legality in the UK

Part 2 of 3 of the CAP Euro Barcelona legal lecture by advocate Peter Wilson explains the legal reality of online gambling in the UK, now that it is legal and regulated.

CAP Euro Barcelona guest speaker, advocate Peter Wilson of Blake Lapthorn law firm, is himself an Englishman. UK law is in fact his specialty and so this installment, Part 2 of 3, in which he discusses the current legal status of online gambling in the UK post the 2005 Gambling Act is of special interest.

The lawyer explains the situation in the UK with an emphasis on advertising, now legal under certain constraints in the UK.
