From the River City Group's newsletter:

Various I-gaming companies have both noted and welcomed today's judgment
handed down by the European Court of Justice (ECJ) in the Placanica case,
which suggests state gambling monopolies are in contravention of EU
legislation providing for the free movement of services. The case, an ongoing
dispute over Italian legislation prohibiting the cross-border provision of
betting services before the ECJ, is precedent-setting in the eyes of many
industry observers, including Unibet CEO Peter Nylander, who in a prepared
statement vehemently remarked: "We are now all looking forward to the
creation of a new, modern gambling market within EU. The time for monopolies
is over."


IGN will report further later today.


This is very good news.
