    My first thought is this the way the Fred Phelps, godhatesfags.com, freedom of speech case is going to go???.. 8-1 seems to be an oddity in the SCOTUS in this day and age.

    This does not bode well for the Marine Father who is bringing suit against Fred Phelps.. this will incite the frindgies, to get frindgier.

    Like the idea of the law since making the films involves breaking the law. It sounds as if the law was poorly written, based on comments in the decision. Hopefully the lnaguage can be tightened up to pass muster.

    Isn't that "Vick Scumbag" back making millions in the sports world, if so every game he plays in should be boycotted..Vick should be used as "bait" when they train police dogs.....

    The problem with this law was that the prohibition against showing the killing of any living animal did not distinguish between activities considered legal, such as hunting and fishing, and those such as dog fighting that have generally been considered illegal. If prosecutors wanted to follow the letter of the law, they could prosecute those making hunting and fishing videos such as dvd's of the old American Sportsman series.
