Reuters reports that Antigua, home of Absolute Poker may go to the World Trade Organization over the indictments of online poker sites. Antigua contends that the actions of the United States violate the agreements that bind WTO member nations together. This would not be the first time the US has been taken to task and sanctioned by the WTO, in general or over online gaming. Due to this fact you can imagine the chances this move have to actually change American policies. It is possible a change in the de facto enforcement of these laws is possible, just don’t get your hopes up. Even in cases where the US has given ground to the WTO over issues like subsidies it took years before any change was made.

This story may be the reason that the Cereus Network (Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet) did not enter into the same agreement with the DOJ that Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker entered into earlier in the week. I doubt that, but that is the current speculation from players and a few poker news sites. You can read the full Reuters article here.
