ST JOHN'S---The lead counsel for Antigua and
Barbuda in the ongoing Internet gaming dispute
with the United States, says the island could benefit
from moves by American legislators to legalise
online gambling within the United States borders.
"This is of considerable benefit to us ...It vindicates
what we have said all along," said Mark Mendel,
referring to the new legislation introduced by US
Congressman Peter King in June. If passed, The Inter-
net Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection and
Enforcement Act of 2013 would federally legalise
online gambling in the US.
It would also allow US states, including New Jersey,
Delaware and Nevada, all of which have legalised
internet gambling, in some form, to continue to offer
Antigua and Barbuda has criticised the United
States since 1998 of breaching its commitments to
members of the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
under the General Agreement on Trade in Services
(GATS) by enacting laws that prevented foreign-
based operators from offering gambling and betting
services to its citizens.
In 2005, the WTO ruled that the US had violated
international trade agreements by prohibiting operation
of offshore Internet gambling sites.
Antigua claimed that it lost US$3.4 billion a year
due to the US action, but the WTO awarded the
island US$21 million.
But in its final ruling, the Geneva-based WTO has
allowed Antigua and Barbuda to suspend certain
concessions and obligations it has under international
law to the US in respect of intellectual property rights.
But for almost a decade, St John s has been trying
to resolve the issue with Washington. The Baldwin
Spencer administration has described the WTO ruling
as a "fair and reasonable solution," adding that it
plans to break copyright laws by getting legal ret-
ribution over Washington s refusal to let Americans
gamble at online sites based in the island-nation.
Mendel said that these recent efforts by US leg-
islators weaken Washington s previous stance that
they were "adverse to gambling.
"Now that they are moving in that direction them-
selves, forcefully...that pretty much completely takes
away their formal defense at the WTO," he added.
