After SOPA and PIPA, Why Gamers Should Care About Bill H.R. 4204 and ACTA

With the political world focusing on the upcoming presidential battle between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, politicians are still finding time to single out videogames. H.R. 4204, or “Violence in Video Games Labeling Act”, is a bill that would require a mandatory warning label linking videogames to aggressive behavior on nearly all titles. As legislation that will set a dangerous precedent based on questionable research, League For Gamers (LGF) is rallying the troops at PAX East in Boston this weekend to generate the type of support that caused SOPA and PIPA to die early deaths. But there is a lot of activity going on under the radar with the U.S. government trying to circumvent the type of rallying cry that defeated SOPA and PIPA.

It's important to keep tabs on the stuff gov'ts try to pull when it comes to Internet regulations.

It's important to keep tabs on governments whenever they try to regulate anything. They're sneaky bastards.

@ dredgewalker
That's all of 'em. :D I don't know if I should laugh cry. :/

It's important to keep tabs on government officials who are lackeys of big corporations.
