Supreme Court Strikes Down FCC's Profanity and Nudity Rules on Broadcast TV
The US Supreme Court rules against FCC policy regulating curse words and nudity on broadcast television.
Here's some additional information just out from Reuters:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against the federal government's regulation on broadcast profanity and nudity, saying the agency had not given
fair notice of its changed policy.
The high court's unanimous ruling, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, declared the Federal Communication Commission's standards vague as applied to the specific broadcasts in the case, but it did not decide the larger question of whether the indecency policy violated constitutional free-speech rights.
