Amicus Brief of Industry and CDT on Video Games

Amici urge the Court to affirm the Ninth Circuit’s decision holding that the California statute at bar violates the First Amendment. Collectively, amici represent some of the leading participants in the Internet and online industry, including service providers and equipment manufacturers, and leading public interest organizations concerned with the First Amendment and online civil liberties. While the California statute does not, on its face, seek directly to regulate online video gaming activity, the Court’s decision in this case will have a direct impact on online gaming and other constitutionally protected content accessed via the Internet.
