TENNESSEE'S ANTI-VIOLENT VIDEOGAMES BILL WITHDRAWN


Tennessee's Senator Kilby has withdrawn his anti-violent videogames bill over constitutionality concerns. In brief, his bill proposed the ban of the sale of violent videogames, regardless of consumer age. The bill was viewed as non-viable given that less draconian bills have been struck in other states.

The battle over censorship continues, with judicial challenges by the industry and attempts by governments to control videogame content or distribution. Minnesota, for example, has just passed a new bill proposing fines for underage consumers found to be knowingly renting or buying M or AO rated software.
