Few topics in the video game world cause as much heated discussion as censorship. Just Google “Australia” and “video games” for proof. Of course, the reason this topic is volatile is because it’s about protecting the first amendment rights of the artists and designers behind the games we so adore.
If you are as fascinated as I am with first amendment law as it relates to video games, then you definitely owe it to yourself to check out the following DICE 2010 presentation by Entertainment Software Association senior vice president and general counsel Ken Doroshow. Granted, there are times when his speech does feel a bit like a law class (he even warns the audience beforehand), but that just means it’s high in knowledgey goodness. Feed your mind.
