    ESA, EMA files contest for California statute banning sale of violent video games to

    According to the brief submitted, said statute would "threaten freedom of expression not just for video games, but for all art forms. It would also tie up our courts in endless debates about what constitutes acceptable creative expression in our media. It protects no one and assaults the constitutional rights of artists and storytellers everywherCalifornia vs. EMA/ESA's oral argument commences on November 2, 2010.

    Back in 2005, a California law prohibited the sale of "offensively violent" games to minors. Five years later, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and Entertainment Merchants Association (EMA) are contesting that law, filing a brief with the Supreme Court, claiming that "the California statute is unnecessary, unwarranted, and unconstitutional."
