SAN JOSE, Costa Rica, March 25 /PRNewswire/ – Who: David Carruthers, BetonSports.com CEO What: Yesterday, the World Trade Organization (WTO) upheld a complaint by the island of Antigua and Barbuda that U.S. legislation criminalizing online wagering violates global trade pacts. David Carruthers, CEO of BetonSports.com, supports the ruling by the WTO and believes that this decision will ultimately convince the United States to regulate the online gambling industry rather than continue its fight for complete prohibition. The Issue: According to David Carruthers, “It is our hope that the ruling by the WTO will act as a catalyst for the U.S. Furthermore, we believe that the WTO’s decision represents a tremendous opportunity for the online gambling industry and BetonSports.com as we fight for regulation and legalization in the hopes of establishing operations within the United States.” “Ultimately, the true winner in this ruling will be the American consumer. Furthermore, I believe this ruling truly vindicates the island of Antigua as a premier jurisdiction for online gambling.” BetonSports.com, headquartered in Costa Rica, has been licensed in Antigua since 1997.
