2012 Vol 37(1): Bloody Censorship SKU17074

Legal studies exercise based on the article "Bloody Censorship" by Anthony Gray: (2012) 37(1) Alternative Law Journal pp 37-40.

Recent moves by Parliament to increase penalties for the use of 'obscene' language raise questions about the extent to which individuals have freedom of expression rights in Australia. I argue here that such laws might be challenged on the basis of the implied freedom of political communication developed by the Australian Courts. I look to the experience in other countries such as the United States where courts have upheld an individual's freedom of expression over attempts to regulate what a person can say, and the extent to which freedom of expression is protected in international instruments.
