This comes off the back of the video game thread but was interested to break it out and see what people thought.
There’s been an interesting court case in the UK lately involving the gamer “Nepenthez”. He makes a (good) living from the FIFA games - essentially releasing YouTube videos that generate high viewing levels. More recently, the community has been discussing ways to trade “skins” which seems to have fallen foul of UK gambling laws. You can read about it here.
I was curious to know if any of our Experts run communities where the content or discussion has either gotten near or into areas where it’s become a legal concern and how you’ve dealt with it.
From my experience, we had a “matched betting” board (you might need to google it to learn more) which could be hugely profitable, but also carried a good deal of risk and we had to have a custom board disclaimer, some due diligence from our legal team and ensure any issues from that area were prioritised.
We also had threads around people claiming they were suicidal and some “interesting” money saving ideas.
What have others seen and how did you deal with it?
