Freedom of Speech
Internet law attorney, Aaron Kelly, answers questions about free speech, its limits and the Internet. What do speech, press, religion and petition freedoms afford us? It’s a big question, but in short, the freedoms to speech, press, religion and petition guarantee that each citizen can express themselves safely and openly. It means we can speak up when we disagree with authorities; it means we can practice a religion of our own choosing without fear of persecution; it means that our media is able to report on government mistakes; it means we can gather, and en masse, let our collective voice be heard about things we’re unhappy about.

CISPA Explained By Internet Lawyer

shady government laws
Remember the PIPA and SOPA drama? Well, now we have the Cyber Intelligence Sharing Protection Act — commonly known as CISPA — yet another attempt to curtail cybercrimes. A proposed amendment to the National Security Act of 1947, CISPA was introduced in October 2011, and like SOPA and PIPA, is currently being tweaked and re-drafted to address public concerns.

The anonymity of cyberspace was — and still is — too tempting for some, and mom’s advice about saying nothing if you have nothing nice to say seemed to go the way of rotary phones. Today, most defamation cases involve an online statement, review website, a tweet, or a facebook post.
