Speech in a Commercial World:
The Nike Paradox
By D. Eric Schippers
Excerpt: "Congress shall make no law... abridging the freedom of speech..."
James Madison penned the Free Speech Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to provide express protection for the fundamental right to speak in a free and open society.
