The Entertainment Software Association (“ESA”) is a trade association whose members create and publish computer and video games. To support its members,1 ESA, among other things, promotes their exercise of free-speech rights, protects their content from mass infringement, and collaborates with educational and health organizations to promote the benefits of entertainment software. ESA also regularly participates in litigation that affects members’ interests, and in 2011 was a respondent in Brown v. Entertainment Merchants Association, 564 U.S. 786 (2011), where the Supreme Court held that video games are entitled to the same First Amendment protections as books, television shows, films, and other expressive works.
