DVD and computer game advertising to be widened

The government is changing its classification system for films and computer games so that new entertainments can be advertised before they are classified.

Attorney-General Philip Ruddock told parliament today the change would streamline the classification process and reduce the regulatory burden on industry.

Mr Ruddock said allowing DVD or video films and computer games to be advertised - including on the internet - would meet industry concerns that the old system, which allowed only cinema release films to be advertised pre-classification, was cumbersome and outdated.

The story is too old to be commented.
