Question by Kenny: Is it illegal for residents of the US to profit from advertisers of illegal online sports gambling on a forum?
In other words, say an internet forum owner who lives in Chesapeake, VA decides to take advertising money, from online gambling sites deemed illegal by the US Justice Dept.

Wouldn’t his profiting from those illegal gambling sites be breaking some federal laws?

It is illegal now for an offshore gambling site to do business with US residents. So, wouldn’t it also be illegal for a US resident to be profiting from the promotion of those illegal sites, to US citizens who post on his forum?

This is my belief:
Well, if the person(s) in question are strictly advertising, then it is not against the law. If they are advertising illegal products, of course, it is illegal, or if they are directly participating it any area of the site.
