Protecting Minors from Free Speech.
Taylor, Joan Kennedy
Journal of Information Ethics, v6 n2 p67-74 Fall 1997
Because the Supreme Court has put severe limits on the use of the concepts of national security and protection of women to justify censorship, the predominant strategy has become censorship to protect minors. This article examines the legal concepts of obscenity and material harmful to minors, restrictions on broadcasting, and challenges raised by new communications technologies. (PEN)
