Minnesota drops attempts to block gambling websites
05 June 2009
It’s about time someone came to their senses in Minnesota. If you haven’t been following this story, at the end of April, Minnesota sent out letters to numerous ISP’s demanding that they block 200 gambling-related domains from being accessed by residents of Minnesota. Since then, iMEGA stepped in and turned up the heat, and also told the ISP’s to ignore the order. From what I understand, none of the ISP’s complied.
Pat Garafolo, who initially introduced the bill, issued the announcement that Minnesota would be dropping any further actions in regards to blocking these domains, stating that the reason was because “the legal position was reconsidered.”
Now only if Steven Beshear or someone in his administration would have came to their senses long ago.. Maybe there’s still time?
