A Greek appellate court has disagreed with a lower court's decision about the unconstitutionality of Greece's new controversial anti-gaming laws.
The anti-gaming law, enacted in July, is intended to stop online gambling. However, the law effectively bans all electronic games in any public commercial place such as Internet Cafés.
Two Internet café owners and an employee were charged for allowing their customers to play a game called Counter Strike and online chess on the cafés' computers. The lower court held this to be unconstitutional and dismissed the case. The appellate court however, held that the constitutionality issue will be revisited in a new hearing.
