Crush Bill Signed

President Obama signed the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act on December 9. The previous April, the Supreme Court overturned the 1999 ban on such videos (see Summer 2010 AWI Quarterly), and depictions of the torture of animals immediately reappeared. In restoring the ban, the new law addresses the Court’s concerns and will once again close the market for such videos.
