Abstract:     
The US Supreme Court has handed down a series of sentences, mainly in the area of obscenity, which have determined a series of very strict requirements with regard to the procedure that governments may take to control the exercise of rights guaranteed by the First Amendment. In this paper, we set to undertake the task of comparing how the Spanish legal system has dealt with similar problems in the past and in the present in comparison with the American legal system.
