Professor Jane Kirtley Discusses Violent Video Game Ban and Free Speech

Professor Kirtley was on Fox 9 Monday, June 27 discussing the Supreme Court's decision in the "violent videos" case.

That same day the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states do not have the right to ban violent video games from children as this would ban the children's rights to free speech. The 2010 Silha Lecture, hosted by the Silha Center for the Study of Media Ethics & Law, was delivered by Paul Smith, the attorney who represented the video games industry and whose argument prevailed in the case.
