Fuck, the Law

Via Boing Boing comes a legal paper called “Fuck” which discusses the word and the law around it. Censorship, free speech, harassment etc, fuck is very important.

Choice quote:

Understanding this relationship between law and taboo ultimately yields fuck jurisprudence.

From an Irish perspective it is something worth looking into especially with our history of censorship and the Church and State’s constant worries about morality. On the same note I notice that Fuck.ie is available. I wonder has anyone tried to register it. Maybe I should try and register an RBN and see what happens?
