Decision made in Brown vs EMA supreme court case

Post by VnM jboy on Mon Jun 27, 2011 5:38 pm

Just moments ago, the Supreme Court in a 7 to 2 decision, has decided that, like music, books and movies, video games are First Amendment protected speech in the case Brown v. EMA (Formerly Schwarzenegger vs EMA). So many people took action signing the gamer petition and directly filing briefs with the Court.

The decision has been a long time coming, and we're so pleased by today's news. We're sure this isn't the end of the fight. One decision doesn't mean that we won't see elected officials attempted to test these new parameters. You better believe the ECA will continue to fight for the rights of the entertainment consumers and we hope you'll stand with us and add your voice.

But today, we can hold our heads up a little higher knowing that we won this fight. We'll be following up later in greater detail once we've read the complete decision.

Details about the case:

Quote

On April 26, 2010, the Supreme Court granted the state of California's petition for certiorari (cert) in Brown v. EMA , the so-called “violent video game” case. The case was formerly known as Schwarzenegger v. EMA, but the name was changed to reflect the new Governor of California. This was the first time that the Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments on any of the state laws attempting to restrict or ban certain video games. Until now, all such laws have been struck down by lower federal courts as unconstitutional restrictions on Free Speech protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution.

The Court heard oral arguments on November 2, 2010. At that time, the Court also reviewed all friends of the Court briefs (amicus briefs) that put forth additional information for the Court to consider. ECA submitted such a brief on behalf of American digital entertainment consumers and attached the gamer petition.

because this case was to ban mature vdeo games permenatly in some states with a 2000$ fine for having a mature video game which means no call of duty or battlefield ...at all period.
