Submission + - First Amendment Extends To MySpace Says Court

Billosaur writes: "CNN is reporting that an Indiana state appeals court has ruled that a MySpace entry by a student, criticizing the school's principal and the school's policy on body piercings is protected free speech. The court ordered the lower circuit court to set aside the student's probation, stating that the "overall message constitutes political speech," even if it was epither-laden. The judge who initially handed down the probation considered the speech "obscene"."
