  • 3/29-Senate Holds Violent Game Hearing

    Constitution and civil rights-focused subcommittee looks at controversial issue today; hearing to be webcast live starting 2 pm Eastern.

    The idea of regulating violent video games is still being batted around in Washington, D.C., and gamers can get a little insight on how legislators are dealing with the issue by listening to the play-by-play of today's Sentate subcommittee hearing on the matter.

    Beginning at 2 pm Eastern, the Senate Committee on the Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Property Rights will hold a hearing titled. "What’s in a Game? State Regulation of Violent Video Games and the First Amendment." Gamers can follow the event live from the Judiciary Committee's Web site.

    Panelists who will address the committee include Rev. Steve Strickland, the brother of a police officer killed in 2004 by an Alabama teenager and a plaintiff in a civil suit against Take-Two Interactive and a number of other industry companies. Entertainment Software Ratings Board president Patricia Vance will also be a panelist, as will Minnesota House of Representatives assistant majority leader Jeff Johnson, and a number of academics.
