  LA City Attorney Sues Over GTA: San Andreas - Misc
  Posted by: Ronnie on 01-28-2006 @ 13:46
This News Item has been viewed 6,631 times
The city attorney of Los Angeles, Rocky Delgadillo, has filed a civil lawsuit (PDF) against Take-Two Interactive over last year's incident regarding the company's best-selling Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The game contained hidden sex scenes later exposed via the infamous "Hot Coffee" add-on; the suit alleges the company engaged in unfair competition by shipping the hidden pornographic material in a game which received an M rating.

Once divulged, the game was withdrawn from retailers in order to avoid being rated "Adults Only" by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. A new version of the game has since been re-released by Take-Two. However, more than 12 million copies of the original version of the game were sold, accounting for sales revenue of about $600 million. The LA attorney's office estimates 200,000 units were sold in California alone, accounting for some $10 million in revenue.

The suit seeks civil penalties against Take-Two—which would amount to a maximum of two $2,500 fines—but also requests Take-Two surrender a portion of the profits from sale of the game and be ordered to fully disclose the content of their video games. "Businesses have an obligation to truthfully disclose the content of their products—whether in the food we eat or the entertainment we consume," Delgadillo said in a statement.

Tobacco companies do not disclose the content of their product either and if this guy wins his suit we the people should and have the moral obligation to do the same to the tobacco companies! Rock
