On December 10th, 2007, Hop-on, together with European trade directors and other dealing experts, endorsed the proposal by Representative Barney Frank, the Internet Gambling Regulation Act, which could solve the brewing $100 million gaming dispute and bring the United States to comply with the International trade agreements made to ensure a competitive dealing field among local and international operators if the present administration would agree to the legislation.
As the problem between Europe and the U.S. over the Internet gambling industry rages on, the British Government commented that they are in favor of regulating the Internet gaming industry instead of banning it. The President of Hop-on, Peter Michaels said that the British officials want to regulate the industry because the taxes that would go back to the government are billions of dollars.
The U.S. should prevent this money from leaving the United States. As the lone U.S. mobile phone manufacturer currently making gaming software, licensing and regulations for online gaming with the use of cellular phones, Hop-on Incorporated is slowly filling the improving mobile gaming demand.
By getting wagers from the U.S. and WTO counties, Hop-on will get billions of dollars of taxes for the U.S. government while making sure that their customers can wager on the most secured and safe environment. The Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative states that the British Government has shown that they support the regulation of online gambling instead of banning it like the UIGEA in the United States, according to Emily Bourne, the private secretary of the British Department for Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.
Jeffrey Sandman, the spokesperson for the Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative said that the UIGEA is a failure on the part of the United States. Michaels said that by utilizing the software of Hop-on, people can enjoy cell phone gambling wherever they go.
