The article focuses on U.S. Supreme Court rulings that upheld the legality of pornography. In the Roth v. United States case, the Supreme Court declared that obscenity was not within the area of constitutionally protected speech or press. But pornography supporters were able to reverse this decision in the 1960s. Former chief justice Warren Burger has upheld the legality of pornography in numerous cases. The Supreme Court has also extended First Amendment protection to computer-generated child pornography and Internet pornography.
