Civil liberties group asks state Supreme Court to weigh in on video

March 3, 2014

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, a group "devoted to preserving civil liberties in the digital realm," has asked Wisconsin's Supreme Court to hear the appeal of a teenager found delinquent for posting a crude rap song about his Spanish teacher on YouTube.

"The case is of special interest to EFF because it believes that incautiously interpreted 'harassment' laws improperly restrict online speech that should receive full First Amendment protections," reads a friend of the court brief accepted by the court this week.
