RSAC

(Recreational Software Advisory Council) A non-profit organization established to rate game software and online content that was folded into the Internet Content Rating Association (ICRA) in 1999. Its two-fold purpose was to protect minors from potentially harmful Web content, while preserving free speech on the Internet. In 2007, the ICRA's work, services and products were incorporated into the newly launched Family Online Safety Institute (see FOSI).
