The organizers are proud and honored to announce that with the support of International Masters of Gaming Law(IMGL), VIGE Seminars will host an IMGL Masterclass with top names of the industry discussing the risks and challenges for affiliates, operators and platforms are facing when working in regulated markets.
Moderated by Dr. Joerg Hofmann, Immediate Past President of IMGL, Partner with Melchers Law firm, Heidelberg, Germany, the panel will stress on liability.
Online gaming continues its explosive growth year by year and respects no territorial borders. Trying to stop online gaming offering is like holding back the tide. Nevertheless, many jurisdictions are trying to keep unlicensed operators out of their market and restrict the gaming offering. The gaming regulators are using every imaginable measure to enforce local gaming regulation: Blacklisting of operators; penalizing players; ISP blocking; payment blocking and affiliate blocking measures are taken into use.
The gaming regulators have now turned their attention to the software supplier industry for aid in policing local gaming laws. Gaming platform providers have been asked to monitor traffic on their platforms and block for unlicensed gaming operators (.com traffic).
It has even suggested by a gaming regulator that gaming suppliers are liable for offenses committed by unlicensed gaming operators (using the suppliers’ platform).
Is it for the gaming suppliers to act as the gaming regulators’ extended arm and are the suppliers liable for offenses committed by the gaming operators? Does it also impact the affiliate industry?
All these questions will be answered by the speakers of the panel which are as well renowned as the importance of the IMGL Masterclasses held worldwide.
The speakers of the panel are:
- Dr. Franz Wohlfahrt, former CEO of Novomatic, Gaming Attorney, Vienna (to be confirmed)
- Assaf Dor, CEO at CELLXPERT
- Yoav Dotan, Founder/Owner Genesis Global/Affiliatecruise.com
- Tal Ron, Founder of Tal Ron, Drihem and Co., Law Firm, Tel Aviv, Israel
- Morten Ronde, Director for Education and Association Development of IMGL, CEO Danish Online Gaming Association, Copenhagen, Denmark
- (Surprise regulator to be confirmed soon)
