Among them, Bwin and Real Madrid, to who considers illegal operators

Codere begins legal action in Spain against online operators

(Spain) .- The lawsuit presented at Commercial Court of Madrid by "unfair competition", and initially led by Codere against Bwin and Real Madrid, opens a new chapter in the controversy generated by online gambling worldwide. It argues the making of "illegal advertising" of online operators, which would be unfairly competing with their allow counterparts in Spain, as Codere.



This unfair competition, resulting from the use of an illicit, is affecting the gaming sector in Spain, which accounts for 1% of Spanish GDP and generates over 100,000 direct jobs


"We are experiencing bleeding situations,” comment from Codere, “as Bwin operates from a tax haven and not pay any fee or charge of the game, and yet such Codere, or its subsidiary that operates the bingo hall and authorized CANOE sports betting, just a few meters from the Santiago Bernabeu, as well as having heavily restricted to advertising is authorized, the Treasury pays only for the concept of game rates a figure equivalent to that paid to Real Bwin Madrid annually for their sponsorship. Unfair competition is served."


With this demand, it is intended that the courts declared as unlawful advertising the business conducted by Bwin and Real Madrid as cooperative action unfair competition, and seeks the immediate cessation of advertising, to sponsorship and even possibility of requiring replacement, all customers who request it, the shirts and other promotional materials for items that do not contain the brand Bwin.


"The lawsuit, filed before the Commercial Court of Madrid, is the first in a series of legal actions Codere drives to enforce their rights and the Spanish companies and other European Union countries, which have come to rely legitimately in the Act, the action of the government to take care of your compliance and the jurisprudence of the courts, including the European Union, which these companies are welcome so vague. Neither the Spanish laws and other regulations or the law of the European Union, to enable operators such as Bwin, and that firm to develop the activities performed in Spain."
