ECA Thanks Legal Team for Brown v. EMA 'Team Effort'

July 1, 2011 -

The Entertainment Consumer Association issued a statement this week thanking its legal team and other individuals that helped prepare the amicus brief and the consumer petition that was submitted to the Supreme Court in November in support of the EMA's side of Brown v. EMA. The group thanked gamers and ECA members that took the time to sign the petition, legal teams that wrote the amicus brief and its various legal advisors that put everything together. Full statement below:

"As many of you know, earlier this week, the United States Supreme Court held in favor of the Entertainment Merchants Association in Brown v EMA, the so-called “violent video games” case. This is a huge achievement for all involved, especially Paul Smith of Jenner & Block.

ECA would again like to thank all of its members and the general public who signed the Consumer Petition. We would also like to thank and congratulate our partners in the Consumers Amicus Brief:

 

  • Competitive Enterprise Institute (“CEI”)
  • Consumer Action (“CA”)
  • Consumer Federation of America (“CFA”)
  • Public Knowledge (“PK”)
  • Students for Free Culture (“SFC”)

 

As well as the following in the preparation the document:

 

  • William Stein, Daniel Weiner, Daniel Schnapp & Daniel Doeschner of Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP
  • Professor Jonathan Askin, as well as students Noah Levine, John Randall, Maisa Chiang, Nina Oksman, Belinda Wan, Rachel Kamerman, John-Paul Gonzalez, Erin Shinneman, David Ross, Valentina DiPippo, Christopher Repole, and Ou Jia at the Brooklyn Incubator & Policy Clinic of the Brooklyn Law School."

MechaCrashI use a Dynex DX-840 headset, but it's discontinued. :( I wanted a mono headset so I could keep the other ear free for my speakers, but it has the bonus of being very light and comfortable, so you don't notice it.08/29/2015 - 12:41am

Sora-Chan@Big Perm: I'm a bit of a fan of the Omega Recon3D headset from SoundBlaster. Though it is a bit expensive.08/28/2015 - 2:36pm
Big PermI actually need to look into a new headset. I have those green razer krakens and I would not suggest them. Though maybe they're better for people without glasses08/28/2015 - 11:32am

MattsworknameMika was always about being a show off and using her but to crush her foes, even back in the alpha days. They just took that and maxed it to the extreme, and I LOVE IT!!!!!08/28/2015 - 5:36am
IvresseJust saw R Mika trailer myself. I do like the inclusion of Vega as the punching bag, especially with that Stone Cold Stunner knocking his mask off....but that ultra move with his face between 4 buttcheeks...class! :-)08/28/2015 - 5:20am
MattsworknameOk, finally got a chance to look at the R mika trailer for SF 5, and I Heart her so bloody much. She just looks like pure fun to play as and is SO colorful. All the YES!08/28/2015 - 3:23am
