The Constitution Does Not Defend The Right To Annoy
from the indeed! dept
A nice little editorial summarizing what has been said way too often by all of us who can’t stand spammers and telemarketers standing behind the First Amendment. Free speech does not mean you have the right to annoy people. It does not mean you have the right to invade our homes and bother us. Of course, the article then goes on to say that California’s anti-spam law and the laws that may get passed by Congress are a good start. I wish that were true, but I fear the unintended consequences of all the laws proposed so far will cause more problems than they solve. I wish I knew what the perfect solution was – but I haven’t seen it yet.
