Michigan Holds Hearing On Concert Bill

A Michigan state senate committee held a hearing Monday on a bill that

would require parental-warning labels on tickets and advertising for

some concerts. The proposed law would apply to any artist who has had a

parental-warning sticker on an album in the past five years. Recording

Industry Association of America spokesperson Joel Flatow, who testified

at the hearing, said the bill is "ludicrous" and an example of "blatant

prior restraint."
