The Association of American Law Schools Section on Mass Communication Law hosted a panel discussion on “Sex, Thugs and Lock ‘n’ Load: Minors and the Regulation of Expression.” Scholars discussed indecency, censorship, and violence in the media and electronic games. They presented a video showing violence in the video game “Grand Theft Auto” and used charts and graphs. The panelists correlated the influence of violence on everyday life for children with the risk of lung cancer from secondhand smoke. They said that child protection censorship depends on allowing the censorship and maintaining tolerable limits. Following their discussion, the panelists responded to questions and comments from members of the audience. Professor Peltz moderated the panel. close
