Great topic! There's lot's of information.

Start at the All Purpose LibGuide, which covers a bit of everything. Click the first resource, Academic Search Complete. To log in, enter your 6 digit student ID number and your first initial, last name, and number (ex.: JDoe5). Search "free speech" AND internet. Be sure to include the quotation marks and the AND, as they will give you a focused set of results. On the results page, use the left side toolbar to limit the results to the last 5 years or the time period you prefer. You'll see lots of scholarly articles such as Kamatali, J. (2016). The limits of the first amendment: Protecting American citizens' free speech in the era of the Internet & the global marketplace of ideas. Wisconsin International Law Journal, 33(4), 587-638.

If you don't find enough here, go back to the LibGuide and click on the second source, Research Library, for more relevant results.

Thanks for asking a librarian.
