Michigan Legislature Passes Lawful Internet Gaming Act

After years of debate, both the Michigan Senate and House have voted in favor of passing a new online gaming bill known as the Lawful Internet Gaming Act. As of this writing, the only thing stopping this bill from becoming law is the signature from Governor Rick Snyder before his term ends in January 2019. So long as Governor Snyder signs the bill, Michigan would become the 5th State in the United States to legalize online gambling (joining, Nevada, Delaware, New Jersey and Pennsylvania). The full main bill can be read here. However, it is noteworthy that there are other bills that are part of this package including HB 6420 (Fantasy Contests Consumer Protection Act. The Lawful Internet Gambling Act would establish a division of internet gaming within the Michigan Gaming Control Board. The bill would allow persons of at least 21 years old to register with one of Michigan’s 3 casinos in Detroit or one of the 23 tribal casinos and gamble from their websites. There would be an 8 percent tax associated with online gambling. Applying for a license isn’t going to be cheap because the bill assesses a $200,000 license fee followed by a $100,000 annual renewal…

The Legal Checkup

Dentists typically recommend that a person’s teeth be cleaned every six months and that oral x-rays be taken at least once every year. Internists recommend that a person receive a physical examination annually. Pets visit the veterinarian for vaccinations and well-care appointments. Vehicles need oil changes and regular maintenance. Your personal and business legal affairs are no different and require regular “legal checkups.” Much like going to the dentist, the idea of meeting regularly with your attorney is probably not going to excite you; but now more than ever, periodic communication with your lawyer is essential. Unfortunately, far too many web entrepreneurs wait too long and ultimately reach out to their attorneys when trouble has already come their way. In many instances, the legal problems encountered could have been prevented had a “legal checkup” taken place. The law in the United States and throughout the world is constantly changing. It is naïve to think that just because a certain activity was legal in 1998, that it is still legal in 2017. In my experience, business operators can be stubborn and unintentionally engage in conduct that may have started as legal but is now considered unlawful. A turbulent or significant change…

DMCA Designated Agent Services

DMCA Attorney Corey Silverstein warns all website operators to ensure DMCA compliance and offers DMCA Agent Services. From Copyright.gov: “The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) provides safe harbors from copyright infringement liability for online service providers. In order to qualify for safe harbor protection, certain kinds of service providers—for example, those that allow users to post or store material on their systems, and search engines, directories, and other information location tools— must designate an agent to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement. To designate an agent, a service provider must do two things: (1) make certain contact information for the agent available to the public on its website; and (2) provide the same information to the Copyright Office, which maintains a centralized online directory of designated agent contact information for public use. The service provider must also ensure that this information is up to date. In December 2016, the Office introduced an online registration system and electronically generated directory to replace the Office’s old paper-based system and directory. Accordingly, the Office no longer accepts paper designations. To designate an agent, a service provider must register with and use the Office’s online system.” The Designation of an agent to receive notifications…

FTC Testifies about Data Security and Small Business

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), earlier today (March 8, 2017), Acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen spoke about the FTC’s continuing efforts in protecting consumers and educating small businesses on ways to keep consumer data secure. “Failing to take reasonable precautions to secure data from identity thieves and other malicious actors hurts consumers and legitimate businesses alike,” Acting Chairman Ohlhausen said in her written testimony. “Data breaches can harm a business’s financial interests and reputation as well as result in the loss of consumer confidence in the businesses to whom they entrust their data.
