Supreme Court ruling opens up legal sports betting | CMO Strategy – Ad Age

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal law that bars gambling on individual sporting events in most of the country, in a ruling likely to unleash a race among the states to attract billions of dollars in legal wagers.

Ruling in a New Jersey case, the court said the 1992 law unconstitutionally forced states to maintain laws that ban gambling. Nevada is the only state where single-game wagering is now legal.

Sports gambling could begin in a matter of weeks in casinos and racetracks in New Jersey, which instigated the legal fight by repealing its gambling prohibition. Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and West Virginia could follow soon, and the number of states might reach double digits by the end of the year.

What is GDPR & How Does It Affect Me?

What Is GDPR?

GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation, which is coming from the EU and associated countries. Its purpose is to finally make good on a legal question from several years ago about how data is used and whether individuals own the data that they create by interacting with websites online.

The courts ruled that individuals are the owners of their data, not the corporations (or websites) that collect the data. Therefore, it must be deleted on a regular basis so that customers don’t have to constantly contact websites they may have visited and ask them to delete their data.

Who should delete that customer data? Good question.

Find out who should delete the customer data, and more info, at this Search Engine Journal article.

Can Augmented Reality Breathe New Life Into Banner Ads?

Can Augmented Reality Breathe New Life Into Banner Ads?

The very first banner ad on the Internet—for AT&T on Wired in 1994—had a click-through rate (CTR) of 44 percent. Now that the novelty has worn off, that rate is more like 0.05 percent.

Add augmented reality (AR), however, and it may be a different story. Taking a page from the leader of the free world, companies like Blippar and Oath want to use AR to make digital ads great again. But, like Trump’s presidency, can it last?
