In 2004, Yahoo and Google announced that they were removing gambling advertising from their sites. This launch seems to contradict their position on Internet gambling.
This is an extremely controversial move, and one that Yahoo may not be equipped to handle. Yahoo does provide a “responsible gaming” tutorial, but the press will be quick to jump on any tales of woe from players who’ve lost a lot of money from the site. Broken marriages and lost homes will only make the stories juicer.
