Antigua and Barbuda Threatened US to Go to Piracy

Antigua and Barbuda Threatened US to Go to Piracy

Antigua and Barbuda has long been disputing with the US over gambling services, and it seems that the issue has reached a critical point: the country wrote a letter to the WTO, threatening to lift protection of US intellectual property rights next year unless the United States stops blocking or compensates its gambling services.


In Antigua and Barbuda, about 5% of all countrymen used to be employed in the gambling industry. However, the United States has seriously affected the cross-border supply of gambling services, which subsequently shrunk “to virtually nothing.” Antigua filed a dispute at the WTO and won it – 11 years ago, the WTO found that denying Antiguan gambling companies access to the American market violated free-trade. The US didn’t change the rules of its game. In response, the WTO ramped up the pressure in 2007, granting the small country the right to suspend US copyrights up to $21 million every year. A couple years ago, Antigua even threatened to launch its own pirate website, but this promise prompted a sharp response from the United States.

Antigua and Barbuda has waited for a dozen years for the US to stop violate international obligations under the General Agreement on Trade in Services, which cost the country up to 25% of its GDP. However, the US has not been able to propose terms for a settlement that would even remotely compensate for the harm done. Now the Caribbean country informed the WTO that it would take action to enforce the suspension of copyright on the sale of US intellectual property.

In response, the US claimed it was committed to resolving the matter, putting forward a package of concessions, but Antigua and Barbuda were the only WTO member blocking its proposals.

Patient_0 avatarMeanwhile, back in the good ol' US of A, Congress drags it's heels in explicitly making online Fantasy Sports gambling illegal because of the massive kick-backs they receive. F#@%ing hypocrites!

Pirated version for good measure.. lol Sucks I already have the commercial DVD I bought about a decade ago. But then again, whoever broke into my home might have stolen that also. lol Round and round we go!

Mike_Oxhard avatarLet's not forget about all the states with lotteries that are technically gambling, all sanctioned and run by the government. Then, there's Las Vegas, Atlantic City and plenty of Native American Casinos scattered all over the U.S. Can you say "this is Bull$hit?" I knew you could. Once upon a time, the U.S. government didn't impose their will on what other countries did within their own borders. Now, our government thinks that the American taxpayer is to paying them to be the police men of the world. As if we could afford that. It's really pretty sad!

Solcis avatarYou guys knew that gambling in the US is enforced by the Federal Reserve, right? Not kidding about that one at all, either. I guess they think that their powers reach beyond US borders?
