Discussion: More Red Band Trailer Controversy

Source: NY Times

I found this article in the NY Times and thought it was interesting. It's regarding the quantity and easy access of red-band trailers online. Basically the article states a Federal Trade Commission report from last December identifying red-band trailers as a "new concern" and that most age-verification "gates" for the trailers are too lax and that they should have stricter verification methods to confirm that the viewer is at least the age of 17. (Side note – I find it funny that once you turn 17 you're allowed to view adult material/rated R movies, and yet they can't fight for our country for another year. Hmmm…)
