How far does this "character" concept extend? Do you need permission to sell your home-made stormtrooper costume? Do stealth airplanes and the "invisible" flying aircraft carrier violate the "character" of Wonder Woman's invisible airplane? Are you allowed to sell your Pontiac Firebird after installing a K.I.T.T. kit?

Since the only numbers provided in the article were alarmist figures on the current number of kids exposed to video games and violent media (which might be part of the data, but certainly aren't part of the study results), it's a bit difficult to tell what they were looking at with this research. Without some concrete information, this is just a piece of unsupported propaganda.
