Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Google/Yahoo Say 'No' to gambling Ads, Porn Okay:
Pretty sure it is due to US government legislation introduced a couple of years ago, Yahoo and Google would take ads from casinos if it was legal for them to do so.

I agree, it sounds like total hypocrisy to me. The US government banned online gambling because it was damaging real-world casinos and most online gambling firms were operating out of the UK or elsewhere, i.e. not in the US. Yet online porn is fine, presumably because 89% of online porn comes from the US. Google and Yahoo are also quite content to assist the Chinese government suppress human rights in that country.

***FS*** Barney Frank is trying to float a bill at reviving online gaming. So its timely.

Boy are there going to be some lawsuits flying around if it does get revived.
Market share before and after the ban will be easy to measure and therefore loses will be easy to estimate. Reintroduction, will be the only proof most people will need that the ban had no legitimacy in the first place.
