Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Discussion 2 Tort or Crime

Ashford 2: – Week 1 – Discussion 2

Tort or Crime


In Chapter 1 of the text you read about the Bailey v. Eminem defamation case   where the court held Eminem’s lyrics were protected by the First Amendment.   Read the article and view the video (the links are listed under Week 1   Additional Learning Resources Required and Week 1 Multimedia Required) to the   Pahler v. Slayer case. Respond to the following questions:
1.    Did the Pahler court use the same reasoning as used in   Bailey v. Eminem?
2.    Should the court’s decision in Pahler be different   because a young girl was murdered?
3.    Recall the difference between a crime and a tort. Based   on these two cases, analyze and discuss whether artists should be held liable   for the actions of their fans.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’’ postings. Do you agree   with their analysis?  Discuss with at least two of your classmates’ the   ethical issues raised in this case and if you think the courts’ decisions in   both Bailey and Pahler were correct.
