How should the law deal with cases llike the suicides of Tyler Clementi and Phoebe Prince?
From Cyberbullying – "All of the Supreme Court’s student speech cases have involved speech occurring on school grounds or during school-sponsored activities. As a result, there is no clear indication of whether schools can punish cyberbullying occurring outside of a school context. The Supreme Court must confront the issue of whether a school violates a student’s free speech rights by punishing them for creating, on their own time and using their own computers, electronic material that mocks or insults school officials or classmates. Until they do, lower courts will continue to struggle with the resolution of this issue."

Respond to part A and part B:

A. Have you thought about your own digital footprint? Have you posted photos, videos, or comments you would like to erase. Google your name and see what comes up. What level of privacy did you expect as an Internet user?

B. "Do colleges and schools have any authority when students misuse electronic devices both on and off school property? If there are cases of cyberbullying involving computers, cellphones, and social-network sites like Facebook and Twitter, does an institution have a legal basis to step in? Or is it stepping on free speech?"
