The Constitutional Implications of Cyberbullying Laws

Listen to the program now.

This program examines the constitutional implications of anti-cyberbullying legislation. Many states have recently enacted legislation aimed at curbing cyberbullying, which involves the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. There is a great concern that these laws, primarily aimed at protecting teenagers, may be invalidated if challenged because they may run afoul of the U.S. Constitution, particularly on free speech grounds.
