The Lithuanian government proposed legalized online gambling and licensing by next year with regulation by Gambling Supervisory Authority and the use of ISP blocking.
“The Communications Regulatory Authority said that it would cost a lot [to block a domain] and it’s very complicated. But we have Estonia’s example – the Estonians said that it’s not a cure-all solution. There is a black list, they are tracking those companies and blocking them. As far as the results are concerned, 66 percent have not even noticed that such a measure is being taken. Another 19 percent circumvent the law and 16 percent do not register since they are aware that they will be blocked,” Deputy Finance Minister Vytautas Galvonas said.
