    Comments on the French Court of Cassation decision in Pari Mutuel Urbain v Zeturf Ltd on whether an online gambling company established in Malta was entitled to offer its services to customers in France without the approval of the French authorities or whether restrictions on its freedom to provide services were justified on public policy grounds. Reviews the facts of the case, the earlier judgments of French courts and the outcome of recognition and enforcement proceedings in Malta.
