Abstract:     
In this article, Professor Finkelman discusses the Supreme Court decision in Ashcroft v. Free Speech Coalition. As written, the Child Pornography Prevention Act of 1996 would have made illegal images and suggestions of child pornography, even if there were no actual graphic image. The Court in Ashcroft struck down many of the provisions of the Act. Professor Finkelman provides analysis of the Act as well as a context of laws governing pornography, obscenity, and child pornography before 1996.
