But as of today, no laws or rules are in place to regulate any interstate commerce in the case of OLP. So without anything in place, if Nevada has not specifically prohibited it (sadly I think they did), they could have been accepting all US players to play at their site legally registered and running in Nevada.
Lest you think this is a small issue, think this;
Does your state prevent you from accessing you account from another state? Lets say you were a State employee, and have retired, and get most of your stuff done instate via the internet. You would be able to access your account in that state from out of state. Ex;, you retire from Mn, move to Hawaii, and want to change your permanent address so you get your check.
There are no rules or laws that allow me in Ca, to buy products from Vermont. There is no special compact that Ca. and Vt. have entered into that allows me to buy products from there, here, online.
I should have been a lawyer...... I am not, (IANAL) but I can use the internet and have not found any of the rules or laws that most seem to think are already in place. This subject seems riddled with rumor and inuendo, and a good example of that is in regards to Ca's position on OLP and what the governor has said. First off, he hasn't said much that can be found via google, and what he has said he said mostly a few years ago. Yet for some reason I read that Gov Brown thinks it is a possible help in an ongoing budget crisis in California.
Perhaps I am no where near as good as I want to think I am about finding specifics via the internet. This is very possible when it comes to law stuff. At least here in Ca, the state made a compact with Lexus Nexus that makes it nearly impossible for me to find the legal papers involved in any court case without being a paid subscriber to Lexus Nexus. This has driven me nuts on many different occasions thru the years. I am not a subscriber to Lexus Nexus.
I would appreciate any links any of you can find.
