Abstract

Due to the existence of a Constitutional right of anonymity, it is often assumed and professed that anonymous electronic and Internet communications cannot be regulated without violating the First Amendment. This article challenges this assumption by examining the Constitutional right of anonymity as applied to commercial speech, including e-commerce.
