Ban on explicit games on Illinois unconstitutional

Posted on Wednesday, November 29 2006 @ 15:57:14 CET by

DailyTech reports the ban on sexually explicit computer games in Illinois is deemed unconstitutional: In August 2005, the Illinois State Legislature enacted the Sexually Explicit Video Game Law (SEVGL) which required all retailers to place a four-inch square label on all games with sexual material (covering a significant portion of the box art), signage within five feet of game software, signage at all information desks, as well as outlawing the sale of such games to minors.


Judge Matthew F. Kennelly ruled yesterday that the SEVGL was unconstitutional, a decision that the State is currently appealing. Specifically, the court concluded that the SEVGL was not narrowly tailored and that the SEVGL’s brochure, labeling and signage provisions constituted “compelled speech” in violation of the First Amendment.
