Bodog.com domain seized by American authorities
The Bodog Brand's Bodog.com domain has been seized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The operation, however, seems to have little consequence as the domain has been dormant for more than a year.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has moved to seize the Bodog Brand's Bodog.com domain, the company announced via the CalvinAyre Blog today.

The seizing of the domain follows similar recent actions from the Department agains the Everleaf Network, and could hint to a new intensified strategy from U.S. authorities in the fight against illegally operating poker sites and networks.

In Bodog's case, however, the operation is likely to have little effect, as the domain has been dormant for more than a year, says Bodog founder Calvin Ayre.

"Not sure what to say. BodogBrand.com is a brand-licensing organization based outside the U.S. The brand left the market last year and the domain in question has been dormant globally for longer than that," Ayre said.

{review 33 right}"We are only currently doing brand licensing deals outside the U.S. so this domain had no place in any of our current plans," he added.

The loss of the Bodog.com domain will as such have little influence on Bodog's worldwide operations, and players are to be left untouched by the action, too.

Bodog in 2011 rebranded its U.S. facing operations to Bovada, using a .lv domain, and players outside the U.S. who play on Bodog's international poker site are using the Bodog.eu domain.

According to CalvinAyre.com, the operation is therefore more likely to be part of a scare tactic to intimidate other companies who continue to offer American games on a .com domain, including Sportsbook.com, BetOnline.com and the Merge Gaming Network.

Extinguish the light) Wake-up call or the end? Either way, they broke the law and the law got to them ... It is a pity that, as always suffer regular users (players) and not the organizers and owners of shit. Recall FTP and management!

I think, as they say, the domain name or a poker room is not important.
Central to all is that our money is safe and we can withdraw it anytime we want.

That's what we want all
