Parents' Empowerment Act

No votes yet

A new proposed piece of U.S. legislation, House Bill 4239 (or the "Parents' Empowerment Act") would open the door to allow parents to sue anyone selling any visual media that would potentially be considered harmful to minors. The bill uses poorly-defined language that would cause more harm than good to valid expressions of free speech. More can be read at the Comic book legal defense fund and at Ninth art.
