Hilden on Simpson: And the Proprieties of Buying What May Be a Confession Memoir

FindLaw's Julie Hilden, who in my opinion always has something interesting and provocative to say about free speech issues, weighs in on how the Goldman family got the rights to O. J. Simpson's manuscript If I Did It, why it decided to go ahead with publication, why Denise Brown has called for readers to boycott the book, and how the First Amendment figures into all this. Ultimately, whether readers do or don't purchase the volume, Hilden offers some thoughtful commentary on both sides. Read her column here.
