Can internet gambling be effectively regulated? Managing the risks

Abstract

Reviews regulatory methods and technologies availaible to a range of risks from internet gambling, including gambling by minors, fraud, money laundering, data confidentiality breaches and problem gambling. Argues that the status quo offers no effective protection and that legalisation and regulation would afford siginificantly better protection than the status quo. Argues that regulatory methods and technologies for controlling each type of risk already exist. Relating to the risk of problem gambling, these include the use of tax and licence-fee revenues to extend and enhance treatment and support programmes and the use of regulation to require operators to provide customer advice.
