    I notice most websites that promote online gambling also have a legal disclaimer (scroll down, you'll see the CasinoMeister one at the bottom of the page).

    My understanding is that the legal statement/disclaimer is there to mitigate legal liability for promoting online casinos. My question is -do they actually work? Has any webmaster ever been sued and then used their legal disclaimer as their defense? If so did it work? Is there specific wording required?

    If I start a website and then plagiarize the CasinoMeister legal statement, is that content theft? Do you actually get legal advice on how to word your legal statement?

    Thinking of restarting a website (or 3) and I was wondering...

    Thanks!

    Hi, and welcome (back) to the forums.

    Interesting question:
    The laws are different in many Countries, best thing to do is check out your National Legislation or Regulative Body.

    Online is still a bit of a grey area, to express it conservatively.
    Normally, when you aren't running a Casino yourself, but just promoting them, you should still be O.K.
    Certain Casinos are banned from "operating" in certain Countries: of the ones you wish to promote, be sure to read their affiliate T&C's, there is usually a section where the Rejected Countries are displayed.

    Legal disclaimers can principally be copied, as long as you replace the trademarks and "company" names:)
    Change the wording a bit and you would be fine:
    I am not 100% on this so i would await some more replies or do some research yourself:
    Most Casinos (if trustworthy, and with capable management) are well aware of what they can and can't do: it is always wise to direct any
    Such questions to them, and then work with the info you get.

    Good luck!
