GREEN : In 2000, the Antiguan online gambling industry reached its peak.
RED : In 2001, the United States undertook a number of law enforcement actions targeted against the Antiguan online gambling industry. These actions included cutting off credit cards, threatening advertisers, and continuing criminal cases against licensed and regulated Antiguan operators. The United States' enforcement activities, which were in violation of the United States' GATS commitments, caused massive harm to the Antiguan online gambling industry, as reflected above.
