In Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Ass’n, the Supreme Court held that a California statute banning the sale of extremely violent video games to minors was uncon-stitutional because it violated minors’ First Amendment rights. This decision high-lights the Court’s inconsistent application of evidentiary standards required for States to regulate the sale of erotic (not obscene) content and the sale of violent content to children.
