Freedom of Expression

The way British journalists talk about Freedom of Expression, you’d think they had never picked up a book on Publishing Law. The copy on my bookshelf lists a vast range of exclusions, though perhaps even the author could not have forseen the broad restrictions added in the decade and a half since publication. In Britain, as in much of Europe, we have conditional freedom of expression.

  1. And it’s even more conditional in France, where insulting the republic and foreign heads of state, as well as denying the Holocaust and the Armenian genocide (and probably various other historical events) are all illegal.
