    Oh god, its back

    Just when we all thought we'd seen the back of that stupid anti videogame law in greece, their apeals court has confirmed that the law stands and overturned the previous judges ruling that the law was unconstitutional.

    So now they are banned again

    The Greek gaming tragedy is fast sliding into farce.

    Last week a Greek judge threw out a case against two cybercafe owners from Thessaloniki, ruling that a law banning computer games was unconstitutional.

    Had they been found guilty, the two proprietors and an employee could have faced a three month jail sentence and fines of about E5,000 each, along with the loss of their business licences.

    The game-banning law was introduced to crack down on Internet gambling. Trouble is, this sledgehammer-to-crack-a-nut legislation also made it illegal to play computer games in public.

    So the judge's decision to throw out the case appeared to be a return to good old-fashioned common sense. Not so. Yesterday, an appeals court overturned the decision and ordered a retrial.

    According to Ananova no trial has been set yet. The farce continues.
