According to the WTO ruling... so who knows how far this will go. But it's an interesting development:

US rolls the dice at the WTO and loses; must change online gambling laws (Ars Technica)



    The tiny Caribbean nation of Antigua and Barbuda has just won a World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling against the US regarding online gambling. The WTO has ruled that the US "has failed to comply with the recommendations and rulings" of past WTO decisions, opening the way for possible trade penalties against the US.



As I understand it, this could potentially mean that U.S. will have no recourse should Antigua and Barbuda decide to ignore certain U.S. trade and rights agreements - so there would be little recourse for U.S. patent holders should these countries decide to start selling bootlegged copies of Windows Vista or music/movies.

I tend to agree with Bill Maher assertion that "the major difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats are bought and paid for by a less scary group of special interests."
