First Amendment law experts talked about One, Inc. v. Olesen*, a landmark free speech case, and its long-standing effect on later obscenity rulings. Among the topics they discusses were the significance of the decision, and its impact on both gay rights and subsequent free speech cases.

* One, Inc. v. Olesen involved the magazine ONE: The Homosexual Magazine and the subsequent campaign against the publication by the FBI and U.S. Postal Service, with the Los Angeles postmaster determining the October 1954 issue was obscene and illegal under the Comstock Law. close
