As you have no doubt heard by now, the state of Kentucky has roiled the online poker world this week by announcing its intention to ban 141 poker- and casino-themed domain names. (Actually, the entire list, which you can view here, goes pretty far beyond this characterization, and includes some entries that don’t exactly seem to fit in with the others.)

The PPA has spoken out strongly against this, and many news analyses have shown serious flaws in the court’s argument. Kentucky has backed off a bit, but the danger still remains.

What do you think of this? Have you been following this issue?
