this was an ok introduction to the topic, though it's aimed at people within the industry. endusers have no reason to care, even though they do quite a bit in some cases.
this is probably the neatest thing about gamepolitics ever. though if you read most of the legislation, it's completely in line with what one would expect and doesn't really seem to pose much of a threat to anything. again, not being a developer or industry person, that is; if someone gave me a job in that industry, this would no doubt be concern #1.
i was disappointed in the lack of discussion about PACs and the like, but that's probably a bit too cynical and not necessarily in line with the publication's audience.
