Kentucky is working to force 141 Internet gaming sites to block access to Kentucky users, or to relinquish control of their domain names. The state alleges, among other things, that online gaming drains the state of money by undermining horse racing, a key state tourism industry. Following a hearing, a district judge ordered the domain names be transferred to the state. The sites will be able to object to the transfers.
