Bodog ordered to pay $49 Million and loses Domain Name
Customers of Bodog.com are now being directed to NewBodog.com. After having what appeared to be technical difficulties yesterday. There is no Bodog.com anymore.
Information coming to us this morning says, the loss of the company’s domain is not the cause of the problem, but rather a result of more serious litigation brought against the company by 1st Technology LLC.
Bodog failed to answer the allegations made against them in a suit filed in the State of Nevada, as a result, a default judgment was issued against them on August 1st, 2007 ordering the company to pay damages of $49 million.
1st Technology LLC who claims that Bodog’s downloadable software infringes the company’s patent, which has been granted in the United States as well as other places in the world. 1st Technology LLC owns the patent on a process for taking bets online.
Part of the ruling was that the register of Bodog’s domain names be removed from all servers associated with Bodog and Calvin Ayre. Making the domains useless.
This will severely impact Bodog as well as the implications for the online gaming industry as a whole are huge. Several operators could find themselves being forced to pay out big, if the 1st Technology patent really does protect a fundamental process of online gaming.
Watch for further details as Games and Casino will keep you updated as it becomes available.
