This presentation takes another look at the unprotected category of OBSCENITY. In the earlier presentations we examined the general rules as to the unprotected categories of obscenity and of certain sexual depictions of children. This presentation takes a special look at the twists in analyzing a category called "near obscenity," where it may not be legally obscene but the Court recognizes the governmental concerns with the secondary effects of this speech. This YouTube Channel is designed to provide my students supplemental instruction, as I teach them remotely. I want them to "take a soak" in the law and not a quick shower. This Channel is also designed to provide learning to the broader community. Learning can lead to enlightenment, and enlightenment to justice...or, at least, to a taste of justice.
