Freedom of Speech: Volume 21, Part 2

Cambridge University Press, Jul 5, 2004 - Philosophy - 439 pages
Freedom of expression will, as the essays in this volume illuminate, encounter new and continuing controversies in the twenty-first century. Advances in digital technology raise pressing questions regarding freedom of speech and, with it, intellectual property and privacy rights. As the expansion of the Internet tests, and often confounds, legal statutes and precedents established in the era of the printing press, cyberspace looms as a relatively uncharted frontier for free speech and copyright law. Campaign finance reform limits the formerly sacrosanct category of "political speech," while campus speech codes have spawned debates over "politically correct" speech. Expressive liberties may face their greatest challenge from government efforts to thwart terrorism.
