FTC: Children Still Marketed Violent Content

Thursday, 03 Dec 2009 12:06 PM

 


NEW YORK -- The video game industry is doing a better job at keeping young kids away from violent and other inappropriate content than the music and movie businesses, according to a new report by the Federal Trade Commission.

But all three could do a better job at self-regulating, especially when it comes to new technologies such as mobile games and viral online marketing, the FTC said Thursday.

The report, which reviews the marketing of violent entertainment to children, also says movie studios intentionally market PG-13 movies to children under 13.
