🏍 Earlier this month, all members of the notorious hashtag#MongolsMotorcycleClub were slapped with an unexpected verdict as part of the hashtag#conspiracy and hashtag#racketeering charges they were found guilty of. As a punishment, they must forfeit their signature 'hashtag#GengisKhan' signature emblem that members were able to identify each other by, most notably seen on the back of their jackets. 🧥

🏍 The hashtag#verdict has led to some questioning if this violates the members’ 1st Amendment rights by disallowing them the freedom to express themselves.The key motivations behind the punishment is so that the hashtag#Mongols can no longer sell merchandise including the hashtag#trademark, hurting them financially and to disempower them as a club. 😦

While the rise of #technology and artificial intelligence software has been a powerful testament to our world’s productivity and growth, the ethical implications have sparked much debate. In AI-generated porn videos (also known as "deep fakes"), an individual’s face is superimposed onto explicit content, making it appear like it is actually them. 😫 This is often done without their consent 🙅‍♀️, and because the graphic videos are so realistic, it is difficult to decipher if they are fake or not 🤭. According to Erwin Chemerinsky, “the First Amendment exists to provide for the advancement of knowledge. False speech by definition contributes nothing to that”. Do you agree with Chemerinsky or do you believe this form of expressiion deserves #FirstAmendment protection? Comment below.

Did you know that only 33% of Americans can name all three branches of the U.S. government? 😱 The first three articles of the U.S. Constitution lay out the three branches: the legislative, executive, and judicial. Each branch has designated powers as well as co-dependent powers. The legislative branch consists of the House of Representatives and the Senate. The judicial branch includes the Supreme Court and the lower courts. The executive branch is comprised of the president and all other executive officers.
Follow this link to watch a 5-minute video in which federal judges explain the purpose of the three branches of government and how the three branches work to promote justice: https://www.uscourts.gov/news/2018/12/13/judges-separation-powers-protects-bill-rights.

On October 11, 2018, #PresidentTrump signed the Orrin G. Hatch-Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act (the “MMA"), which addresses the treatment of music creators in today’s digital streaming age. Prior to the #MMA passing, musicians complained about difficulty collecting money owed to them from streaming, which they blamed on the outdated Digital Millennium Copyright Act passed in 1998. The MMA guarantees musicians and songwriters royalties on songs recorded before 1972; distribution royalties for music producers; and updated licensing and royalty rules for streaming services such as #Pandora and #Spotify.
