FCC Indecency Policy Unconstitutional, Court Rules

CV applauds the ruling of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in Fox v FCC that the FCC policy on broadcast indecency is unconstitutional and harms not only creative media artists, but the American public. In its well-reasoned decision, the Court cited several examples found in CV’s Big Chill white paper of the “chilling effect” of the FCC’s actions. We fully expect the Supreme Court to uphold this decision should the FCC choose to appeal it. The history of the case, our filings, and earlier commentary can be found here.
