ESA spent $714k on Q1 lobbying

The Entertainment Software Association, whose members include Microsoft Corp., Electronic Arts Inc. and Atari Inc., spent more than $714,000 in the first quarter to lobby the federal government, according to a recent disclosure form.

The trade group, which represents video and computer game makers, is a strong proponent of industry self-regulation. The ESA lobbied on First Amendment issues, measures to promote parental control technology, and on proposals intended to keep violent video games away from children. (Industry)

We don't need a unified voice.

Well, good luck to them, I think it's a shame that this organisation is being de-valued by the software houses.
