Would I be in violation of any law(s) ie, gambling if I decide to satisfy my contest winners with small cash prizes? I plan on running a social network/ video, photo contest website. Also would I be able to satisfy those winners of foreign countries, or locations if I decide to satisfy them by giving away small cash prizes or prizes of any sort?
Let me also say that there's no payment requirement to become a member nor to take part in any particular contest. Free membership, free to participate in contest.
