Louisiana law takes effect
A law banning the sale of sexually explicit games to minors has gone into effect in Louisiana. The legislation was sponsored by State Sen. James Cain and signed into law by Gov. Kathleen Blanco. Its effects are largely redundant however, since it covers legal territory already defined by earlier anti-obscenity laws. Virtually no games sold in North America could be brought to court through the new regulations.
