Germany is trying to ban gambling on the Internet. New legislation that is to become effective next year will make gambling on the Internet illegal.

Bwin Interactive Entertainment will not have to follow that legislation after a ruling in a German regional court. The company will be allowed to continue to operate their sportsbook online with a few limitations.

"We welcome the decision because it confirms the license and makes clear that the planned gambling law can't be realized," said a spokesman for Bwin E.K.

The license in question goes back to right before German reunification in 1990. The company will be allowed to continue to operate in what was the former Communist East Germany. That means, on the down side for Bwin, that the license is not valid in the western area of the country.

The bad news is not all that bad for Bwin. A spokesman for the company claims that they will just direct anyone from the western side to their international website, Bwin.com. The Internet site is licensed with the British Overseas territory of Gibraltar.
