    YouTube said today that it will no longer restrict violent video game content, after an evaluation that concluded there is a difference between the simulated violence of movies and games and the depiction of real world violence.

    I learned about this restriction when I posted a story about whether it was OK for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare developers to include a scene in their popular game that showed a child being forced to defend herself and kill a Russian soldier during a chemical attack on her village in a fictional Middle Eastern country. The scene also showed dead children and a dead dog.
