Audio Of Supreme Court Case Oral Arguments Now Available


     If you're a gamer, then you've probably heard about Schwarzenegger vs. EMA - perhaps better known as the video game/free speech case currently being heard by the Supreme Court. For those who haven't been following this case closely, you might want to start now. The oral arguments from the case are available in audio form to help you catch up.

     Why should you care, exactly? If the Supreme Court finds in Governor Schwarzenegger's favor, the content, cost, and availability of video games, particularly violent ones, will be vastly different from the way things are now. The EMA, on the other hand, is pushing for video games to be recognized as an artistic medium like any other - film, music, books - and therefore be protected under the law in the same way.

     If you love video games, this is a case to pay close attention to.
