The Digital Media Lawyer Blog: “In a victory for new media rights, the U.S. Supreme Court held today that the Government may not prohibit corporations from making independent expenditures on media in support of political causes. This opinion invalidated a federal statute, 2 U.S.C. §441b, that prohibited corporations — except those involved in traditional broadcast media — from making independent expenditures to publicly advocate the election or defeat of a Federal candidate 30 days before a primary or 60 days before a general election. Citizens United v. FEC, 558 U.S.____ (2010). This ruling is important for the multitudes of businesses (like my own) who make direct expenditures on political advocacy through blogs and other forms of interactive media.”
