JackRandom Re:He's complaining about... (164 comments)

Actually, at least one of the apps' woodgrain looks considerable different. (PantryList) I'm not sure how he's determining that "generic" woodgrain is suddenly omfg copyright!!! infringement. Seems like a bunch of hand waving to me.

Oklahoma Senate OKs Violent-Games Bill

JackRandom Re:Make it a crime? (412 comments)

Untrue. In many states it is illegal to sell, make, purchase, transport, etc. any material deemed "obscene". Why do you think we still hear about "Penthouse" or whatever being seized and the hapless clerks hauled away to jail? SCOTUS have repeatedly ruled in favor of the "community standards" laws that restrict the sale of movies, books, etc, so don't think they're going away anytime soon.

The worst part about the "community standards" doctrine is that it is unfair to national distributors/publishers, where a game/movie/magazine may be fine in one city is "breaking the law" in another.
