League for Gamers Formed

League for Gamers Formed - Firefall - MMORPG.com

Red 5 Studios has pledged $50,000 in seed money to form a new organization to advocate for developers' and gamers' rights. Called "League for Gamers", the organization is billed as an alternative to the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) which recently has taken a lot of heat for its support of the controversial SOPA legislation in the United States.

While SOPA is largely dead in the US House of Representatives, a similar bill is working its way through the US Senate.

“The VGVN and the ESA claim to represent gamers and developers, but they have turned their backs on them by supporting and funding legislation such as SOPA and PIPA,” said Mark Kern. “Developers such as Red 5 Studios and other game makers no longer have an organization to represent their true position on this kind of destructive legislation. LFG’s first action will be to petition the ESA to withdraw their support from PIPA, which still looms large in the Senate.”
