TIGA responds to House of Lords Communications Committee’s report on “Regulating in a digital world”

TIGA, representing the games industry, said that the report contains several recommendations that would impact the video games industry.

TIGA said: “Digital service providers (such as hardware manufacturers, operators of digital platforms, including social media platforms and entertainment platforms, and games developers) should keep a record of time spent using their service which may be easily accessed and reviewed by users, with periodic reminders of prolonged or extended use through pop-up notices or similar. An industry standard on reasonable use should be developed to inform an understanding of what constitutes prolonged use. This standard should guide design so that services mitigate the risk of encouraging compulsive behaviour.” To read TIGA’s news release in full, click here.
