German Federal Supreme Court rules in favor of bwin
The German Federal Court finally put an end to a six year legal dispute between Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co OHG (Westlotto) and online gaming provider, bwin International Ltd., sin which Westlotto shought to prevent the company from organizing, mediating and advertising sports betting, casino and lottery games in Germany. In its decision, the Court ruled in favor of bwin.
Prior to this, judgments passed in February 2008 and July 2010 have also confirmed this week's ruling of Germany's highest civil court, that Westlotto cannot obtain injunctive relief against online gaming offerings.
Bwin's Co-CEO Norbert Teufelberger commented: 'We welcome the judgement by the German Federal Supreme Court, and are glad that we will have to spend less of our time in courtrooms in the future. Now we can concentrate on developing modern regulations for online gaming in Germany.'
"We are optimistic that Germany will follow the example of other European states like Italy and France. As in the United Kingdom, both these states have regulated the opening-up of their markets in such a way as to take into account both market circumstances and the need for gamer protection and combating fraud.
'We shall continue to constructively support the positive regulation of online gaming, contributing the extensive know-how that we have acquired, not least as a licensed provider in newly regulated markets like Italy and France.'
