What you CAN'T do with inside information

Watch the video below about Australian football player Nick Maxwell who was fined $5000 for "accidentally" providing Inside Information to family members about his selection to play out of position as an attacker and not ensuring that they did not use that information for betting (without Maxwell's knowledge they placed $85 on him to score the first goal). Maxwell's team mate Heath Shaw was suspended for eight weeks for placing a $10 bet using this Inside Information.

In another Inside Information case, jockey Chris Munce was sentenced to 30 months' jail by a Hong Kong court for selling Inside Information in the form of horse racing tips to a gambler. You can read more about his story in English here:
