A spokeswoman for the Chicago Transit Authority has commented on the federal lawsuit filed against the agency’s ban on M-rated video game ads yesterday by the Entertainment Software Association.
Reached for comment… Wanda Taylor, a spokeswoman for the Chicago Transit Authority, told Kotaku that the authority has not yet been served with the suit but that they feels that the ordinance is defensible.
"The CTA does not allow advertising for alcohol or tobacco products and this ordinance is consistent with that long-standing policy," she said…
Taylor pointed out that they have a number of guidelines in place for determining if an advertisement can run on the CTA. The guidelines, she said, require ads to be truthful and not directed at inciting imminent lawless action. The ads cannot be legally obscene, sexually explicit, depict nudity or portray graphic violence nor can they incite lawless illegal action.
