Apple’s “Code = Speech” Mistake

Apple’s “Code = Speech” Mistake: "Some lower courts have even suggested that Code = Speech.

More successfully, critics of campaign finance regulations have argued that “money is speech,” a strategy that resulted in the much-criticized Citizens United ruling in 2010. The Supreme Court’s equation of money with speech has made regulation of money-driven political corruption very difficult.

If courts were to accept the simple proposition that “Code = Speech,” regulation of our digital society would become very difficult as well, because so much of our society depends on computer code to function." 'via Blog this'
