Is all unibet publicity illegal ?

Since the more or less legalisation of the casino's in Belgium, the parliament has installed an administration to control the voted legislation and to give the permissions. They also rule about new demands or technical interpretations of the voted legislation and transfers infractions to the courts.

 

Unibet is  now having a problem because it is in Belgium illegal to make or place advertising for betting other than the ones from the national lottery. The commission decided to apply that reglementation and to transfer each infraction to the courts. As the Belgian courts are not known for their responsiveness, it may take a while before we see any indictions.

 

Meanwhile we have the advertising for unibet next to our skynetblogs, we have a domain sponsering poker with unibetfree.be (a Belgian domainname, given out by a Belgian based organisation liable under Belgian law) and a lot of other casino sites in be or links to casino's or poker.

 

Are they legal or not ? And who is liable ? And if a blogger here places a link to them ? Difficult to ask him to take it away if skynetblogs itself advertises for an online poker game....

dehype : IPTV is peanuts for marketing

Stop the hype. IPTV is a niche market and an archive-option (replay) but not a replacement for tv-programming. The numbers are just staggering depressive if you compare it with the number of viewers for tv-programming. And you have to take into account that these online programs can be watched at any time any place for free.

 

So has TV lost its power ? NO.

It has now another medium to integrate. And they can optimize the earnings before by hyping online, get a more personalised relationship with the viewers during the screenings and continue that relationship with the fans (even diminishing over time) afterwards online. Maybe there is some money to be made, but not that much as to keep your viewers happy about your network and to learn to love your network, not just watch it.

 

For niche-tv channels or programming this is a completely different situation because the cost for making Internet Television is peanuts compared to traditional TV programs. So they better switch.

Luckily she didn't invite the whole internet

Let's organise a party webstyle anno 2007 web2.0 and invite our friends and publish all our details and location to everybody so it won't be difficult to find us for the partycrashers.

 

Well, this should have made a heavy popular Youtube video if you read the story. This silly 17 year old says that her Myspace account was hacked (maybe she didn't change her passwords since last year when thousands of Myspace passwords were made public) and that the invitation was sent to hundreds of people. The invitation itself was rewritten so that it looked as if she was having a party to destroy her house. (Parents were on holiday thinking she was studying - we were all once so young).

 

So that evening more than 140 partycrashers came ringing the bell. But when she refused to open the door, they came in by the windows or whatever that was open(ed). Not knowing what to do in such a situation, she just panicked and did nothing. When everybody had left, damages accounted for 35.000 Euro's. She is now hiding from her parents which she can't face for the moment.

 

What a digital memory for your future. You will allways be the girl that organised the most publicised home-trash party ever organised. And we didn't see the pics and vids yet. Hope she did behave on the party.... Or her parents would be in for a second shock.
