1820It seems that the efforts of the ESA may well not be in vain after all as a Federal Judge has imposed a temporary injunction on the recently passed HB1381.

Although there is no judgment yet, a hearing will be held later this month to determine the constitutionality of the law.

The Entertainment Software Association has successfully followed through on having other laws overruled on the same grounds and sees a clear victory in this battle as well.

So far, almost $1 million has been spent in legal fees trying to fight overturning these laws to no avail. You have to wonder if the money and the law makers' time would be better spent elsewhere solving the real problems America is having today.

Woot! After all how can someone say that entertainment must have value? After all - isn't the point of entertainment to be a mindless escape from reality?
