With the surging popularity of fantasy sports, debates over its legality are starting to faze the commercial gaming industry. Many people misunderstand the federal Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and claim that fantasy sports are exempted from state and federal gambling prohibitions as long as "prizes are made known in advance and the results are based on real statistics." Even if fantasy sports contests are games of skill, laws implicated by fantasy sports competitions still vary from state to state. Thus, it is crucial for gaming entities to keep themselves abreast of the fast-paced developing legal framework of Fantasy Sports.
In this two-hour CLE course, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners brought together by The Knowledge Group will offer a discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates regarding the latest and significant issues surrounding the fantasy sports framework. This live Webcast also aims to help you avoid common pitfalls and risk issues and offer best practices in ensuring compliance with applicable laws.
Key topics include:
- Fantasy Sports Framework
- Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA)
- Daily Fantasy Sports Forms and Legality
- Potential Legal Challenges and Issues
- Possible Implications on Gaming Industry
- Risk Mitigation Strategies
- Best Compliance Practices
