One of the fastest growing online businesses is online gambling. The scope of this business is so enormous that some have even claimed it is the single most important factor in the growth of e-commerce. Despite this, there is much controversy and uncertainty surrounding the legality of online gaming in both the U.S. and Canada. The U.S. Justice Department's (DOJ) position with regards to Internet gambling, and by extension, advertising of Internet gambling, is that it is an illegal activity.

You can imagine where money is involved the government will get involved. But in all reality new legal questions rise up every day due to the advent of new technology. The internet is on the leading edge and the law has not caught up. So how does one stay up to date on legalities? I found a site that answers these legal questions it is a legal law forum that answers is it legal to questions. Enjoy!
