Court Rules MySpace Postings Free Speech

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Court of Appeals has ruled that the free speech rights of a juvenile girl were violated when she was given probation for her foul-mouthed MySpace criticism of a school principal.

The three-judge panel has ordered the Putnam Circuit Court to set aside its penalty against the girl, referred to only as A.B. in court records.

The ruling said the judges do not condone what was said, but the message itself adds up to political speech

It all started after the principal discovered a posting critical of body piercings. The state filed a delinquency complaint against A.B. last year.

The juvenile court found A.B. to be a delinquent child and placed her on nine months of probation. A.B. appealed and won.

Bloody Hell, This Is The Strangest Biz Opp Idea I've Even Seen On The Internet
