The staff at GamePolitics would like to wish all of our loyal readers a safe and Happy New Year.
I hope that 2011 will be the year when..
..the highest court in the land rules that video games are protected under the first amendment and that only parents have the right to control what their children play.
..that the FCC protects consumers from usage-based schemes and content services (Netflix, Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, Steam, etc.) from broadband service providers.
..that DRM becomes less popular with developers and publishers.
..that the governments of the world realize that there must be some sort of balance when it comes to protecting intellectual property rights.
..that rights holders or their lawyers decide that there is no money in suing thousands of file-sharers.
..and that game publishers realize that there is more money in providing services than in punishing used game buyers.
Happy New Year to all.
