    Canadian Lottery Law

    "Under the [Canadian] Criminal Code, it is illegal to hold a lottery without a licence. Giving away a prize based on chance alone a random draw, for instance is considered a form of lottery. The contest industry invented the skill-testing question to get around that restriction. If a contest includes an element of skill, it is no longer considered purely a game of chance."

    The math question is a loophole so that the company giving away the prizes don't have to get a lottery license.

    How about universal?

    Keep you promotions to yourself and get us that Universal version that Jobs said was so trivial to create.
