Ron Curry, head honcho of the Interactive Entertainment Association of Australia, has vowed to maintain the push for an 18+ rating to be introduced into our classification system. Speaking to Jason Hill over on his Screenplay blog this morning, Curry says the public consultation process for the proposed R rating is a “significant move in the right direction”. Also on the agenda for 2009 is an effort to reduce software piracy, including establishing a new website “that will specifically assist consumers to better understand copyright and other IP issues and how it relates to video games”.
Speaking of the IEAA, we’ve lined up Ron Curry to participate in an upcoming Question Time, so get thinking about what you’d like to ask him. More news on that soon.
