An Important and Historic Day

It's an important and historic day for video games, as the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that they qualify for First Amendment protection a.k.a. "freedom of speech."

Stated the Court:

"Video games qualify for First Amendment protection. Like protected books, plays, and movies, they communicate ideas through familiar literary devices and features distinctive to the medium. And 'the basic principles of freedom of speech . . . do not vary' with a new and different communication medium."
