WTO deadline extended

25 October 2007

The deadline to negotiate compensation claims over the U.S. decision to remove online gaming from its schedule of trade commitments has been extended from Oct. 22 to Dec. 14. Groups that have filed for damages include The European Union, Japan, India, Canada, Australia, Costa Rica, Macao and Antigua and Barbuda.

The U.S. decided to withdraw online gambling from its trade commitments after it lost a WTO case to Antigua and Barbuda. Antigua is seeking $3.4 billion in compensation. The other nations are expected to be seeking greater access to previously restricted markets rather than money.
