EMAIL OF THE DAY: DANISH CONSTITUTION ON FREE SPEECH
Alot hass been written and spoken about free speech in Denmark.
I think you could be interested in what is written down in our "grundlov", the Danish Constitutional Act
In Danish, note how short and concise it is:
In § 77 there are only 29 words but they make it all clear:
§ 77: Enhver er berettiget til på tryk, i skrift og tale at offentliggøre sine tanker, dog under ansvar for domstolene. Censur og andre forebyggende forholdsregler kan ingensinde på ny indføres.
Translation from the official translation: http://www.ft.dk/pdf/Min_Grundlov_eng.pdf
Section 77: Anyone is entitled to publish his ideas in print, in writing and in speech, subject to the authority of the Courts. Censorship and other preventive measures may never be reintroduced.
In Danish, with comments.
In English with comments. My Constitutional Act:
Sorry for my English, but I try ;-)
Med venlig hilsen
