★ Some more talk about Constitutional  Amendments!     ● European Parliament:   ○ Voted on copyright law → this law makes websites responsible for the  content users add to the website  ■ So… who’s responsible for copyright law now? The users or the  websites that hold the content? This could cause problems…   ■ In America, websites are not responsible for copyright laws… think  of Youtube → it has millions upon millions of users and billions of 
video uploads. It would be impossible to manually find and take 
down all the videos breaking copyright law. It’s also impossible to 
create an algorithm to do that.   
 
● 1st Amendment to U.S. Constitution:  ○ A lot of people don’t know all five of the rights stated in the 1st  amendment, and ⅓ of Americans don’t even believe “freedom of religion” 
includes ALL religions  
■ You can pray in school, as long as it’s not FORCED or  ORGANIZED… it can be a  ​voluntary​ organization led by faculty  members or students   ○ Most people are familiar with freedom of speech and freedom of the press  ■ But even these can get confusing and muddled    ● Now let’s look at the 6th Amendment   ○ This states the right to a  ​speedy, public trial  ■ A lot of times though, the 1st and 6th amendments clash, and  that’s when the Supreme Court often has to make tough decisions   ○ For example: sometimes journalists are asked to wait on the publication  of information on a victim or suspect to insure a fair trial (because 
negatively-viewed information could sway the case one way or another), 
but then again, journalists have the right to inform people about what’s 
going on around them  
■ In weird cases like this, where the 1st amendment and the 6th  amendment seemingly contradict each other, the Court nearly 
always sides with the press (meaning the press is allowed to 
publish information at any time it deems necessary)
