Video games ban appeal - oral arguments Bernard Hibbitts at 5:58 PM ET
[JURIST] The US Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral arguments Wednesday in Interactive Digital v. St. Louis County [case caption], in which video software producers submit that a county ban on the sale of violent video games to minors should be overturned as an unconstitutional infringement of free speech. Recorded audio of the oral arguments is now available from the Eighth Circuit (ironically for a case on multimedia, the audio pick-up on this recording is generally poor, but some exchanges are easily made out).
