Privacy vs Freedom of Expression goes to court in the USA

The court case involving Hulk Hogan and Bubba the Love Sponge, taking place in Florida, USA this week, is much more serious than it appears at first sight. In ‘The Hulk Hogan trial that could redefine freedom of expression on the internet, explained‘ Vox Culture’s Michelle Hackman says ‘The tension between privacy rights and free expression remains murky, with only a handful of court decisions coming before this one. But new cases testing the limits of free expression are arising more often than ever on the internet, where personal details can spread further and faster than ever before.’ While no matter the outcome, the case is likely to be appealed, the case is bringing the tension between freedom of expression and privacy to the very public eye.
