Supreme Court Weighs When Online Speech Becomes an Illegal Threat

http://j.mp/1dm1wSK  (Wired)

   "The Supreme Court is being asked to decide when an online threat
    becomes worthy of prosecution, in what could be the first internet
    speech case to reach the high court's docket for the 2013-2104 term
    beginning next month.  The justices are weighing whether to review the
    prosecution of an Iraq war veteran handed 18 months (.pdf) in prison
    for singing in a 2010 YouTube video that he would kill a local
    Tennessee judge if the judge did not grant him visitation rights to
    his young daughter."
