Family Entertainment Protection Act:

It looks like there is a full court press to introduce something called the Family Entertainment Protection Act, a bill aimed at prohibiting the sale of mature rated games to minors and give oversight power to the FTC to investigate and regulate the ESRB rating system. Good idea? Bad idea? Over-legislation? Leave your thoughs and comments here.

“There is a growing body of evidence that points to a link between violent videos and aggressive behavior in children. We are not interested in censoring videos meant for adult entertainment but we do want to ensure that these videos are not purchased by minors. Our bill will help accomplish this by imposing fines on those retailers that sell M-rated games to minors,” Senator Lieberman added.
