Parody, Satire and Freedom of Expression
ECHR BLOG: Satire and the Freedom of Expression: " Two cases of comparable satire were decided by the Court. In both cases the authorities involved had violated the freedom of expression in punishing various forms of satire. The first was the case of Kuliś and Różycki v. Poland (Appl.no. 27209/03), decided by the Court on 6 October 2009. This concerned the publication of cartoons in a children's magazine. The cartoons were a parody on an advertising campaign by a potato crisps company, Star Foods." 'via Blog this'
