Interesting, I thought there was a good possibility they were happy just bringing a big case against the largest and most visible sites. I wonder if the 4-6 week "safe" processing meme is true at all.

The government set up a fake payment processor and processed payments for these websites for over a year.

Doyle must have seen this coming. Luckily for him, it seems as though he was only paid to promote the website and did have any ownership stake...

By criminal activity they mean online poker.

I just went to doylesroom.com and I was able to access it. And Truepoker... Is this because I am from Canada?

the black friday investigation and this one were conducted by different organizations over a period of several years. both of these investigations also had threads made about them over a year ago. if a different organization was investigating merge then we would already know about it.

these sites without huge name recognition can just change to a .uk domain. pokerstars and full tilts domains were worth millions because they had spent so much moeny advertising them.
