NPOV[edit]

There might be some nPOV issues here - "uniquely despicable," etc. Regardless of merit, this sounds more like an opinion piece than an encylopedia piece and needs attention. Quercus 03:20, 9 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I believe I wrote that, and I don't think it is POV. It is not meant to say "uniquely despicable" in my opinion but rather in the opinion expressed in Anglo-American case law, which treats prior restraint as the worst form of censorship. --csloat 01:25, 11 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Rewrite[edit]

I am doing a complete re-write an expansion of this page, off-line. i hope to have it online within 24 hours. When i am done, it will still need some non-US content, if any is available. 205.210.232.62 14:34, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)

The above was me, i thought I was logged in. DES 14:36, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)\

I have just posted a complete re-write of this article, removing the attention tag. However, the article is now strongly us-centric, and additional contenton the UK or othet countries, if any, where the concept of prior restraint is important should be added. 205.210.232.62 22:22, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Arghh! again, the above was me. DES 22:24, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Globalise tag added[edit]

The above comments about the US-centric nature of this article were added in 2005, but are still valid, so I've added a {{Globalize/USA}} tag in the hope that someone will do something about it; I'm not really competent to edit the article satisfactorily myself. At the moment it rather reads as though the US restrictions on prior restraint are the norm in the countries following the Anglo-American legal tradition. This is quite wrong: for example, I'm British, and prior restraint is legal here to a degree far beyond that in the First Amendment-protected United States. Something similar is true in Canada, and I believe in several other countries. From my layman's perspective, the US is really the exception rather than the rule on this issue.

People and businesses[edit]

Why can't prior restraint apply to people or corporations restraint on speech? How is restraint of speech by entities other than government tolerated? Wouldn't this also be prior restraint and belong in this article?Scientus (talk) 20:01, 22 May 2009 (UTC)
