The Supreme Court recently decided not to rule on a case regarding obscenity laws and the trafficking of obscene materials. They decided that Miller v. California should stand. This means that each individual community gets to decide for themselves what is "obscene."This has two important ramifications. The first is that of course, everyone's definition of what counts as obscene is different. A judge in one county might feel differently than a judge the next county over. In a country this diverse, it is impossible to set standards so not having a national law makes sense except...The internet. The Supreme Court's refusal to hear this case means that what someone publishes on a website in New York where the material is not obscene can be viewed by someone in Alabama where the material is obscene. The person who posted the material is liable. This has potentially huge consequences for porn, photography, literature and other forms of art that may be posted online. Those who post have no way of knowing who is viewing their material and what the laws might be in their area.To read more about this, go here.
