Congress OKs Family Movie Act

Filed under by Amanda Toering — 04/20/2005 @ 9:21 am

The House and Senate have both passed a bill that would ensure the legality of technologies that allow parents to mute or skip objectionable content on DVDs or compact discs. Legislators killed a provision in the bill that would have provided legal protections to companies that re-edit feature films to remove such content.

The bill now heads to the Prez.

From the First Amendment Center.
