All in Favor of Free Speech

It was a major victory for free speech advocates of all stripes when Congress sent the landmark SPEECH Act to the President’s desk for his signature. Writers and publishers based in the U.S. could no longer have libel judgments from foreign courts enforced against them unless the evidence met the American standard—the free speech clause of the U.S. Constitution. WSW was grateful to be engaged to build a bipartisan coalition responsible for this bill’s passage. The measure passed unanimously in the House and Senate.
