Tennessee Considers Violent-Content Label

Measure also would require minimum age for listening.

Republican lawmakers in the state legislature of Tennessee — Vice President Al Gore's home state — have introduced a bill to require a single violent-content label for albums, movies, videos and video games. The 21st Century Media Market Responsibility Act also would order minimum-age requirements for listening to or viewing violent products, according to the bill. If passed, the measure would impose a $1,000 fine for each day a nonlabeled work is on the market. Gore, who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, has long been a supporter of parental-warning labels.
