donniebaseball23 writes: Oral arguments concerning the hotly contested California violent video games law began today, and so far it appears that the Supreme Court Justices are siding with the game industry's view that the law is unconstitutional. In fact, Justice Antonin Scalia said that California is "asking us to create a whole new prohibition." Kenneth L. Doroshow, general counsel of the ESA noted that the law "would inevitably lead to a stifling of creative expression across all forms of media, not limited to video games." Furthermore, a new U.S. Gallup poll shows that the majority of Americans want to see parents as being most responsible for what violent content kids can or cannot access.
