Facebook and ACLU 'Like' Free Speech

In separate amicus briefs, both Facebook and ACLU want to challenge a federal judge's May ruling that hitting the "like" button is not a protected act of free speech. The decision hinges on a Virginia sheriff deputy who was fired for "liking" his boss' opponent in the local sheriff election. Facebook described liking something as the 21rst century equivalent of "front yard campaign sign"; ACLU said that whether you write "I like" or click the button, you are conveying the same information. The case is now before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
