CMM 467 - Communication Law (3)

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution provides individuals and society with cherished rights and protections, including freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press. The history, development, interpretation and application of the First Amendment is explored, as are areas for potential conflicts such as governmental restraint of speech, the right to access places and information, maintaining confidentiality of sources, obscenity, commercial speech, and the rights of a free press versus the right to a fair trial. Communication and media related issues such as libel, privacy, intellectual property and government regulation are also addressed.
