Kentucky Boycott Over, Casino Takeover Denied

The state of Kentucky had planned to takeover nearly 150 gambling sites by seizing their domain names, which led to a boycott of all things Kentuckian by many sites - including Kentucky Fried Chicken, bourbon, Papa John's Pizza, Fruit of the Loom, and more. But now the boycott has been terminated, thanks to an appeals court ruling, granting a stay of motion for the Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association.

However, advocates note that should things turn unfavorable for them, the boycott will be re-initiated.
