Google has been enforcing foreign legislation on people from the UK for some time now and they are losing money because of it.

Here in the UK gambling is a perfectly legitimate pastime with proper regulations and yet Google won’t let people advertise on Adwords for gambling related terms.

Why?

How can banning advertisers for things like “online casino” make any difference? The only thing hurting here is Google’s ad revenue. If they want to be responsible and stop people gambling then surely they should remove the organic listings too.

If I can walk down the high street and place a bet then why won’t Google let me do this by clicking on their adverts?
