Free speech swings both ways
Posted by Ron Coleman on September 22, 2008
At LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION® I ask the constitutional question about a change in Google’s keyword advertising policy:
[I]s this is victory for free speech, because a controversial key word is available to all sides that have something to say about an issue? Or is it a diminution of Google’s free speech rights because, on the threat of government coercion (i.e., a lawsuit), it has to make its platform available to messages of which it does not approve?
