The website for Google Buzz claims simply to offer these harmless advantages:"Share updates, photos, videos, and more. Start conversations about the things you find interesting."

    Article Preview A substantial percentage of adult webmasters are still operating without having had their website reviewed by an attorney. Various reasons are offered for this, including: “I know the law,” “I stick to soft-core content,” “My friend told me what his lawyer said,” or, “What is a website review?” None of those excuses justify the unacceptable risk of publishing online content that has not passed legal clearance; however, this article will attempt to address the last excuse which focuses on the webmaster’s fundamental lack of familiarity with the legal review process.

Adult materials are certainly available in every state in the Union, and cannot be outlawed unless legally “obscene” under the Miller test, because of the First Amendment’s guarantee of Free Speech. ...

    A. General Considerations

    Part one of this article series provided a legal analysis describing the current state of the law concerning traditional land-based gambling ad regulation challenges. The promotion of Internet gambling raises some unique legal issues not addressed in the existing court decisions.

In addition, the existing cases do not address the legality of ...
