It also provides retailers with technology, payment processing and customer care services for their e-commerce sites.For EBay, GSI is attractive because of its expertise in taking customer orders, managing them, and sending them out, an area in which online retail rival Amazon.com excels.EBay chief executive John Donahoe said GSI’s services are also a way for EBay to woo large retailers looking to beef up their electronic capabilities. As part of the deal, EBay will sell off GSI’s licensed sports merchandise business and 70 per cent of ShopRunner and Rue La La, which will all become part of a new holding company run by GSI’s founder and chief executive Michael Rubin.EBay will lend Rubin’s new company $467m.

Prosecutors said he made $63.8m (£38.7m) illegally.Rajaratnam’s defence countered that his trades were guided by analysis and public information.Jury deliberations began yesterday in the Manhattan federal court trial. Rajaratnam, 53, faces five counts of conspiracy and nine counts of securities fraud for trading on stocks such as Advanced Micro Devices, Intel, Google and Goldman Sachs Group.

Apple blasted for removing ‘wrong’ apps in gambling crackdown

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Apple blasted for removing ‘wrong’ apps in gambling crackdown Polish magazine and gif-sharing service among apps removed Legal & compliance 10th August 2018 | By contenteditorcenter_img Topics: Legal & compliance Tech & innovation Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Various developers have accused Apple of wrongly removing their apps from its ‘App Store’ as part of the tech giant’s clampdown on gambling content.Apple contacted certain developers to inform them their apps would be taken down to “reduce fraudulent activity… and comply with government requests to address illegal online gambling activity”.However, the companies in question have taken to social media to stress that their apps are not related to gambling.The affected apps include Polish app iMagazine, gif-sharing service Gifferent and a platform that allows users to send clips of Xbox games to friends.Apple recently began dropping certain gambling apps from the App Store in response to a request from the Norwegian Gaming Authority (NGA).The NGA had contacted Apple to say that unlicensed apps must be removed in Norway in order to comply with national regulation and to support its ongoing effort to tackle problem gambling.However, it appears that the recent removals apply to the App Store worldwide.Simon Stovring, a Copenhagen-based developer behind the Gifferent app, told the BBC: “Apple says these apps contain gambling but they don’t reveal how they have detected this. It seems like an unfortunate but honest mistake.”Wojtek Pietrusiewicz, co-owner of iMagazine, said the app has been “caught in the crossfire”, saying the reason for its removal may be that users can access the wider internet via the app and potentially click through to gambling content.Niall Watchorn, who developed the Xbox clips app, said it was “very frustrating” as the app had “just started gaining traction”.Some of the affected apps have started to come back online, including iMagazine and the Xbox-themed app. Email Addresslast_img read more

Swedish and Gibraltar regulators sign MoU

Swedish gambling regulator Spelinspektionen has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Gibraltar Ministry of Commerce’s Gambling Division (GGD), to formalise cooperation agreements between the two.Spelinspektionen and the GGD will work together on a number of areas, with the MoU setting out provisions for information sharing on matters of mutual interest and policy areas.Both authorities have also agreed to offer operational assistance to each other on a continuous basis, in accordance with both of their respective procedures and regulatory policies.Camilla Rosenberg, director general of Spelinspektionen, said that the working agreement makes sense for both parties, given that a number of operators and suppliers that have received a Swedish licence in the country’s new-look market also have technical equipment and a licence in Gibraltar“By opening the communication channels between the authorities we become stronger in our supervisory activities,” Rosenberg said. “This is the beginning of a broad and long-term cooperation.“Earlier this year we entered a MoU with Malta Gaming Authority and our plan is to initiate corresponding collaborations with more gambling authorities in Europe.”GGD executive director Andrew Lyman added: “Gibraltar is committed to working collaboratively and effectively with first tier regulators such as the Swedish Gambling Authority who share common values in terms of consumer protection, a fair market, promoting social responsibility and reducing crime associated with gambling.” Topics: Legal & compliance Strategy Tags: Online Gambling Regions: Europe Nordics Southern Europe Sweden Gibraltar Legal & compliance Swedish and Gibraltar regulators sign MoU Email Addresslast_img read more

Schleswig-Holstein passes online gaming extension bill

first_img The parliament of the German state of Schleswig-Holstein has approved the reintroduction of its liberalised regulatory framework for online gaming, which will be in effect until June 30, 2021.The move to extend the framework until 2021, introduced in March, was backed by Christian Democratic Unionist (CDU), Greens, Free Democratic Party (FDP), South Schleswig Voters’ Association (SSW) and Alternative for Germany (AFD) members of parliament.Only Social Democratic Party (SDP) politicians voted against the proposal.Under Schleswig-Holstein’s regulatory model, an unlimited number of operators can secure licences, with no restrictions on what products can be offered. Licensees are taxed at 20% of gross gaming revenue.As a result of the regulations being reintroduced, the state’s igaming operators that were certified in 2012 can now extend their licences to 2021. These licences began to expire in December 2018, after the state’s previous administration pushed ahead with plans to rejoin the 2012 State Treaty on Gambling.However a change in government saw these plans scrapped. With Germany’s 16 federal states to work on developing a new federal regulatory model by 2021, the decision to put the 2012 regulations back into force will avoid pushing players towards black market sites in the interim, the state’s Minister for the Interior, Hans-Joachim Grote, said.“It is the legislature’s duty to limit the use of legal gambling, to a reasonable extent, to prevent addiction, to protect players – especially minors – to protect customers from fraud, and to ward off criminal activity,” Grote explained.“This can only be achieved with effective gambling regulation. The aim of this regulation is that gambling is conducted properly, fairly, responsibly and transparently.”For Germany’s other 15 federal states, the amended State Treaty, remains in place until 2021. While the cap on the number of licences has been removed, all other elements are in place, limiting operators to offering sports betting, with no in-play, and paying a 5% turnover tax.The legislation was submitted to the European Commission earlier this month.Grote said that intensive negotiations between all 16 states would continue with the goal of finding a common, viable way of regulating gambling across the entire country. He noted that while some states were wary of regulating igaming, it was the only way to tackle the illegal market and protect consumers in the long-term.

Apple will only allow native iOS gambling apps in App Store

first_img Topics: Tech & innovation Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Email Address Apple has announced that it will only allow native iOS gambling apps to be featured in its App Store, giving operators until September 3 to ensure their products comply. 5th June 2019 | By contenteditor AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img Apple has announced that it will only allow gambling apps native to iOS to be hosted in its App Store, giving operators until September 3 to ensure their products comply.In an updated series of guidelines for App Store reviews, the tech giant stated that HTML5 games distributed within apps “may not provide access to real money gaming, lotteries, or charitable donations, and may not support digital commerce”.This means that only native apps, those developed specifically for Apple’s operating system, will be accepted in the App Store. Operators running sports betting, poker, casino, bingo, lottery or horse racing betting that fail to comply now risk having their products removed. One of the newest and most interesting projects in this niche is the gambling calendar app, which contains bonuses for online casinos that you can receive daily.The majority of gambling apps currently hosted in the App Store are HTML5 sites in a native wrapper, or so-called container apps, both of which are cheaper and faster to develop than a fully-fledged native product, according to digital marketing agency Degree 53. The Betfred-backed agency warned that developing native products could be an expensive and time-consuming process, especially with a deadline of September 3. This falls just days before the start of the National Football League season in the US, and weeks after the start of the European football season. “Three months to build a fully featured native sportsbook app from scratch for a major operator is a massive undertaking and potentially unrealistic,” it said.“It will require sizable and skilled native development teams to ensure all functionalities are fully compliant. However, operators with less complex products may be able to meet the deadline if they start now.”The updated guidelines apply to all existing apps currently available in the App Store, in addition to any new apps that are added between now and the deadline of September 3.However, Degree 53 noted that while Apple was likely to reject new updates to non-compliant apps, these were likely to be allowed to remain in the App Store until the September deadline.Customers will still have access to these products on their own mobile devices, but may not be able to download any new updates. New players will also be unable to download them from the App Store.   Apple will only allow native iOS gambling apps in App Store Tech & innovation Tags: Mobilelast_img read more
