Abstract

This webcast provides a brief overview of several novel and emerging dimensions of free expression in digital communications: how the Supreme Court has dealt with Internet speech under the First Amendment, problems posed by the content of web pages on university servers, the emerging challenge of "invasive" sites like Juicycampus.com, the largely fruitless quest for legal relief by victims of cyberattacks (including the challenge of "unmasking" anonymous critics), and the status of "sexually explicit" material on college and university servers.
