Schwarzenegger v. EMA

EFF and The Progress & Freedom Foundation (PFF) have urged the United States Supreme Court to protect the free speech rights of videogame creators and users asking the justices to uphold a ruling throwing out unconstitutional restrictions on violent videogames.

At issue is a California law that bans the sale or rental of "violent" videogames to anyone under the age of 18 among other regulations. While the law was passed in 2005 it has never taken effect as courts have repeatedly ruled that it is unconstitutional. California appealed its loss at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to the Supreme Court

In the amicus brief EFF and PFF explain how the current videogame content rating system empowers parents to make their own decisions without unconstitutionally restricting this new and evolving form of free speech.
