#BREAKING: #MadrasHighCourt strikes down in its entirety the amendment to the Tamil Nadu Gaming Act which banned online games including online rummy and online poker with stakes. #onlinegaming
Court says that by imposing a wide-ranging, complete ban, the amendment has failed the least intrusive test and fallen afoul of Article 19 (1) (g) of the Constitution. Court says the challenged amendment was capricious, irrational, excessive and disproportionate

Court adds that the doctrine of severability is also not applicable since the amended definition of gaming runs throughout the Act. Court concludes the amending Act is disproportionate to the object and ultra vires the Constitution.

#MadrasHighCourt hears challenge to TN ban on #onlinerummy and poker

CJ: We will hear all rummy, then poker players. Endeavor on part of rummy players would be that it is a game of skill, not chance. Then, poker players also, in their poker-faced arguments, will say the same...
Court proposes to hear all arguments from the beginning since when the matter was taken up last, Advocate General R Shunmugasundaram was not there.

CJ: Who's opposing? Only Advocate General?

AG: Yes, I am one-man army

#MadrasHighCourt #OnlineGaming #OnlineRummy #OnlinePoker
@DrAMSinghvi argues on measures to ensure there are no minor #onlinerummy players.

CJ: (If) it's a game of skill, why don’t you allow minors?

Singhvi: We have enough problems even if it's a game of skill. Today the argument is that even this game of skill corrupts minors' minds

1/ Has the #Metaverse "Devolved"?
Me in the @SecondLife #Metaverse in 2013 vs me in the @cryptovoxels Metaverse in 2021. People sometimes ask me why the 2013 Metaverses "look better". I have an answer for these people and it's gonna take several tweets, bear with me... ImageImage
2/ A bit of history: #Metaverses were created whole-cloth from the novel Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson. Active Worlds, which I actually tried (yes, I am that old) was fully based on that book's Metaverse, and provided the basis of all other Metaverses including @cryptovoxels...
3/ When it started, #Metaverses were totally separate and different from the concept of #onlinegames. The idea is to have more #socialimmersion and #userinteraction, not to have in-world goals to push the user in a direction...

#CourtroomExchange in #MadrasHighCourt during hearing of pleas against TN ban on online poker, online rummy.

Sr Adv AM Singhvi submits that his submission only concerns online rummy, not online poker.

CJ: So you don’t have to be poker-faced.

@DrAMSinghvi: Yes...

Discussion veers to issuance of “paternalistic” bans and limits of personal choice.

CJ: I should know better than to have the next burger, but that is my choice ... It is a personal example

Singhvi: It is a personal example to many of us.. and potato chips for that matter

#MadrasHighCourt posts PIL against #onlinegambling, #OnlineRummy Federation, celebrities who have endorsed online games including Virat Kohli, Saurav Ganguly, Prakash Raj, Tammanah, among others, for further hearing on December 10.

@imVkohli @tamannaahspeaks @prakashraaj
Appearing for a respondent, Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi sought time to respond, asserting that the activity in question is not online gambling.
The Court, however, voiced concern:

"For the ordinary common man, what does it mean when a star or film star appears. They will try to follow. Virat Kohli and Saurav Ganguly have so many followers. Fans and fans."
