    Yet Another Reason to Hate the UIGEA

    It's sending industry overseas:

    An Irish government committee set up in 2006 to review how to improve regulation of gaming and casinos, which would apply to both live and online poker games, has stated that Ireland could benefit from the restrictions the United States placed on Internet gambling with passage of the 2006 Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), if the right reforms and legislation were made.

    Not that I have anything against the Irish, or other countries trying to cash in on Internet gambling. It's just stupid when profitable industries that start in the USA are forced to move out.
