Nine online gambling domain names seized by the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland have been put up for sale or license. However it is still unclear whom is selling them, the US DOJ or an agent for them.
The seizures occurred during what was commonly referred to back then as “Blue Monday’, taking a cue from a previously coined industry occurrence just weeks earlier, “Black Friday” where three of the world’s largest online poker domains had been seized by the US Justice Department on Friday, April 15.
Bookmaker.com was quick to switch over to the new industry standard .EU domain extension to keep it up and running for players.
Nearly all other companies in the sector have since followed their lead following a series of similar seizures.
The domain names are all now registered to a “US Poker Marketing Affiliate, LLC” of Las Vegas.
The company claims to specialize in “legal and consulting services to clients interested in Internet Gaming law and operations, both US and foreign-based”.
The website mentions that David Gzesh has some 10 years experience in gambling domain names, however many believe that he is a front for the US DOJ in the sale of the names.
