The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has ruled that "liking" a political candidate’s Facebook page is the Internet equivalent of sticking a political sign in one’s front yard, and is therefore "speech" within the protection of the First Amendment. The three-judge panel reversed the decision of the district court, which had held that pressing the "like" button was "insufficient speech to merit constitutional protection." At the time, we observed that a first-year law student would know that the district court’s decision was wrong. Still, the case, Bobby Bland, et al., v. B. J. Roberts, was closely watched by Internet companies, with Facebook submitting a "friend of the court" brief and being allowed to present its argument before the court. The Fourth Circuit appears to have done its constitutional law homework.
