BBFC bite back at ELSPA

KAPOW! OOMPH! WACK!

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The British Board of Film Classification has bitten back at recent negative comments made by the Director General of the European Leisure Software Publishers Association, which claimed that the Board isn’t fit for purpose.

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) said that the the European Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) “should be judged against the fact that both the Byron Review and the House of Commons CMS Committee have recommended a greater role for the BBFC in games classification".

That’s despite ELSPA’s Director General, Paul Jackson, also proclaiming that his organisation's scheme – Pegi - is the only ratings classification with the power to prevent publishers from distributing unsuitable content to kids.

Comments from both organisations do nothing to adhere to a plea from Margaret Hodge, Minister for Culture, Creative Industries and Tourism, to end their slagging match and get on with creating “a [classification] solution that everyone can believe in”.
