Brazilian politician wants games ban
One outspoken Brazilian senator, Valdir Raupp, has put forward a new bill effectively banning 'offensive' (we assume this means 'mature', in most cases) video games.
If passed, the new law make it illegal for Brazilian firms to create, distribute or import offending titles.
The bill is now in the hands of the Committee on Constitution and Justice, who will vote on the issue.
"We seek to protect the principle of equality - for many the greatest of constitutional principles - with the characterization of such discriminatory conduct as a crime by making provision in the law," says the senator, who is concerned over games impacting "customs, traditions of the people, their worship, creeds, religions and symbols".
Grand Theft Auto, Postal, and several other games have faced Brazilian bans in recent years. Thanks GamePolitics.
