More specifically let's take, for example, one of the many gambling Dapps already in existence. Let's say the Dapp was created, launched, and maintained in a world region where online gambling is legal. Due to the inherent nature of a Dapp, it will be available to users anywhere, anytime, and as I understand it impossible to be "taken down". How do you think local and state governments will respond to a popular gambling Dapp being utilized in a locality where gambling is illegal? What if there is a widespread epidemic of underage gambling in this hypothetical area? Would the developer(s) be held liable, or worse?
I don't expect to receive legal advice from this forum. It's just something that I would like some opinions on. What one may consider to be perfectly OK in one place, can be regulated, restricted, or reprehensible in another. Hence, I feel like this is a valid discussion. What considerations, if any, should a developer and their team discuss?
For clarity, I have no interest nor intentions of creating a gambling Dapp or, for that matter, ANY Dapp that would be considered morally repugnant. This is just the best example I could think of for the sake of argument.
