Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Soon, the U.S. Supreme Court may decide whether to hear a case that could have a lasting impact on computer and video games.

The case before the Court involves a law passed by the state of California attempting to criminalize the sale of certain computer and video games. Two previous courts rejected the California law as unconstitutional, but soon the Supreme Court could have the final say.

Whatever the Court's ruling, we must be prepared to continue defending our rights now and in the future. To do so, we need a large, powerful movement of gamers to speak with one voice and show that we won't sit back while lawmakers try to score political points by scapegoating video games and treating them differently than books, movies, and music.

If the Court decides to hear the case, we're going to need thousands of activists like you who can help defend computer and video games by writing letters to editors, calling into talk radio stations, and educating Americans about our passion for and appreciation of computer and video games.

You can help build this movement right now by inviting all your friends and fellow gamers to join the Video Game Voters Network.

Use our simple tool to send an email to everyone you know asking them to stand up for gaming rights:

You can also help spread the word through Facebook and Twitter, or you can simply forward this email to everyone you know and ask them to sign up at videogamevoters.org.

Time after time, courts continue to reject politicians' efforts to restrict the sale of computer and video games. But that doesn't mean the politicians will stop trying anytime soon -- in fact, it means they're likely to ramp up their efforts even more.

To stop them, we must make it clear that gamers will continue to stand up for free speech -- and that the numbers are on our side.

Help make sure we're ready and able to keep fighting for our gaming rights. Spread the word about the Video Game Voters Network right now:

Thank you.
