Truer Speech When More Are Speaking Julie Hilden's piece today in FindLaw's Writ ("The First Amendment And The Internet: Why Traditional Legal Doctrines Apply Differently In Cyberspace") takes a thought provoking look at how premises and assumptions in First Amendment jurisprudence can be turned topsy-turvy by interactions on the Internet.
