Italy puts a 'ban' on Internet Gaming

The "grey area" that online poker and internet gaming operates in got a little smaller yesterday. While action is continuing in the United States government for a formal Internet gaming ban, it seems these actions have moved forward in parts of Europe. 

Italy has enacted legislation that makes it illegal for any Italian Internet Service Provider to allow connection to an offshore gaming site. This would affect over 600 online sites that the Italian Ministry of Economics and Finance have deemed are operating a gaming operation. The law went into effect on February 24th and could be something that other nations in Europe may attempt.
