Doing some research for my Media Law class and stumbled upon this great quote. The idea that a man’s home is a castle has been around for a long time:
The poorest man may, in his cottage, bid defiance to all the forces of the crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storm may enter; the rain may enter; but the king of England may not enter; all his force dares not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement.
Speech to Parliament
By the way, the commercial speech doctrine in this country is really screwed. If Nike can get sued for defending itself against anti-corporate attacks, then something’s really wrong. (That may be the one issue on which I agree with the ACLU.)
Hopefully, Judge Roberts and the other new judge can straighten this mess out.
