Venezuela has brought into effect a law that could mean 3-5 years ion prison for anyone who imports or distributes violent videogames. the law was proposed last summer and began this month. This news comes after Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez said in January, “Those games they call ‘PlayStation’ are poison.”

According to the new law anyone who is found to, “import, manufacture, sell, rent, or distribute violent toys or video games,” can be imprisoned for up to five years and that the promotion of such games will result in a fine of between 2,000 and 4,000 tax units.
