Antigua is in the process of applying to run a legal pirate website which according to a WTO settlement between the United States and Antigua, they may have the legal right to do so.
The Safe Port Act included UIGEA which doesn't appear to have anything to do with protecting the ports in the United States.
UIGEA was signed by then President George Bush which changed the gambling landscape in America.
Antigua was one of the bigger igaming jurisdictions at the time and the country claims that UIGEA violates World Trade agreements.
Antigua complained to the WTO and won while the United States has simply ignored the ruling.
Antigua to date has yet to do anything about their award which is the right to ignore US patent and copyright law.
In translation, it means Antigua could copy, share or resell movies and software made in America and not have to pay the standard royalties.
The results of this could have a trickle down effect towards other igaming jurisdictions where some countries have closed off their country towards online gambling.
Perhaps something like this could get the current US government to revisit their stance towards online gambling and decide if they want to regulate it or continue their prohibition towards it.
