The patent process is dumb in the first place. The opinion piece is only bringing up old points. Notify me when major groups take action.

Supreme Court Hears Violent Video Game Case Tomorrow

Kc_spot Re:My #1 beef with these moves is... (342 comments)

I need to read more... a hundred times this... also I'm in class and a got a good discussion, and we got to this... "Because of the GTA 4 mod having to need to have the user hack it, essentially you would have ban all video games." Because you can modify any game to show boobs, anyone could DL those mods and we would have a lot of rule 34 running around. Yes, I know that would mean that most of everyone would have to be DL/modding games maliciously, but the point remains that since anyone with video game programing skills could hack/distribute these mods, games are subject to general ban. (I'd LOVE to congress try it to see all the nerds rage... including me)

Supreme Court Hears Violent Video Game Case Tomorrow

Kc_spot Re:I must be a threat to public safety then! (342 comments)

I guess what it is then is that we all have violent tendencies to deal with... and video games/movies are how we deal with that... though I'd like to see what would happen if you allow a full-fledged gang-member watch or play something violent... would it truly push him to do more violent things? or discourage it? ...that's my thought anyway.
