What I learned today in Media Law

Today in Media Law we learned about the differences between obscenity and pornography. Pornography also known as indecent material is “sexually graphic writing, pictures, film, drawings designed to arose sexual desire.” This material is protected by 1st amendment. On the other hand obscenity is denied 1st amendment protection. The definition of obscenity is hardcore pornography that is so potentially offensive and so lacking in social value.
