Minnesota calls for 200-site net gambling blockage

Minnesota officials have ordered 11 internet service providers to block all computers in the state from accessing nearly 200 online gambling sites...

Last year, Kentucky officials seized 141 domain names used by some of the world's biggest internet betting sites. That seizure was blasted by civil liberties groups, including the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which argued the laws of an individual state shouldn't trump the rights of everyone else to access sites that are perfectly legal elsewhere. Kentucky's Court of Appeals later reversed the action.
