Censorship and Free Speech have always been hotly contested topics. With the increasing use of electronic media for the dissemination of information, new questions over first Amendment rights are being raised. For example, should we limit access to pornographic materials by minors, gambling on the Internet, or the posting of abusive content on newsgroups?


There are no easy answers to these challenges. You can learn more from Web sites which deal with freedom of speech, censorship and related issues:
