Yale Law School's Abrams Institute for Freedom of Speech: Commercial Speech and the First Amendment
Event Details
June 2019
11:45 AM - 1:00 PM ET

This panel will focus on recent decisions defining what is and is not commercial speech from the broad perspective of newsworthiness.

What implications does this line-drawing have for the right of publicity, native advertising, and custom content? Where will the increasing use and monetization of data fall on the news/commercial speech divide?
