The Entertainment Consumers Association® (ECA®) strongly supports parents making informed choices about the entertainment that they buy, rent and enjoy with their families. ECA® also supports empowerment through knowledge. To that end, we encourage parents and others to learn more about entertainment ratings and the organizations that rate entertainment content:

Movies & the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA)

Music & the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)

Video Games & the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB)

Television & the TV Parental Guidelines Monitoring Board

Please also see this FTC Consumer Alert regarding Reading the Ratings on the Games People Play.

ECA® applauds the self-regulation efforts of the entertainment industries and their empowerment of America's parents.
