Here's a Slashdot discussion on a BUNCH of things near and dear to me…the First Amendment, Comic Books, and STUPID legal battles.

Recently, the US Supreme Court denied his appeal, with the notion that obscenity is a state-level affair, despite the First Amendment being a Federal law. There's also an interview with the head of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and some good ruminations from Neil Gaiman on the subject.

I HIGHLY recommend donating to both the EFF and the CBLDF. Great organizations (and in the interest of full disclosure, yes, I'm a member of both).
