In the case Schwarzenegger v. entertainetment how would they view the case in relation to the precedent?

This is a government essay I have to do for this case. I understand a little bit of what precedent is, I just don't get how to answer this question. I need help desperately. Someone please answer as soon as possible

Answer on In the case Schwarzenegger v. entertainetment how would they view the case in relation to the precedent?

Precedent is the legal opinion rendered by the courts on similar or related cases prior to this one. So they could decide that "The Act is a presumptively invalid content-based restriction on speech, so it is subject to strict scrutiny and not the "variable obscenity" standard from Ginsberg v. New York."

The court could also "rule in the same manner they had in United States v. Stevens, specifically labeling video games as protected free speech, and creating exemptions for violent video games would be impractical."
