Deadline over online games ; BRITAIN TODAYTECHNOLOGY [Newcastle Journal (England)]

(Newcastle Journal (England) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) THE online games industry has been given a two-month deadline to comply with consumer protection rules aiming to prevent children feeling pressured to "pay to play".

The Office of Fair Trading is publishing a final set of principles for online and in-app games which will also cut the risk of payments vanishing from young players' parents' accounts without their knowledge.

It has given games producers a deadline of April 1 to make sure they comply with the rules.
