Costa Rican online gambling still working

There are 200 gambling websites operating from Costa Rica employing a calculated 10,000 people. There was serious concern that the sites would be seriously affected by the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. I will not be ashamed to admit that I'm considerably worried about the law's impact on Costa Rican economy, but according to sites based on the United States, the law will not affect them.

I've been hoping for Costa Rica to join Antigua's WTO dispute against the United States on online gambling (DS285), but there has been no action yet.

The Costa Ricans have a claim against the U.S. via the WTO over the online gambling dilemna.
