The legality of the Greek Sports Betting Monopoly under European Law
Ιnternational Sports Law Review (2011)

Is it possible, a company that is enlisted on the stock market which by definition seeks primarily to increase profits and to protect the investor’s interests, instead to protect consumers from the services offered by itself. This public service provided would it not conflict its operation as a profit seeking business? And if indeed it were so, would not this be misleading for its investors and should not this be clearly stated in its prospectus informing its investors-shareholders that this company is not primarily aiming at protecting the investors financial interests, like all other publicly traded companies but rather that it seeks instead to implement public policy and public order objectives?
