    This is about as pointless as New Zealand NOW deciding to change the road rules.

    They don't need a law to put a warning on their own box. I'm sure 99% of publishers already have some anti-liability bits in their the EULA anyway (far more binding than a picture on a box).

    This is just mad politicians attempting to further the nanny state cause. Luckly, most politicians aren't mad to that extent.

    Is there no end to U.S. politicians amnestying parents of all and any liability/responsibility for their children's upbringing, education and well-being?!

    I'm sorry to say this, but here I automatically remembered of Greg Proops; he said that, and I only (almost) quote,: "it's no wonder all Americans are fat and stupid" (please keep in mind, I'm only quoting here). And it's no wonder; while your government forces you to quit thinking for yourself and let it think for you, all of us are in danger of actually living the Wall-E scenario, at least intellectually... or worse (...Fahrenheit 451, anyone?!)
