Court rules against Yahoo in Nazi speech case

This Reuters report is important news:

A U.S. appeals court declined to intervene on Thursday on behalf of Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO – news), the world’s largest Internet media company, saying U.S. courts have no jurisdiction in a case pitting free speech against a French law barring the sale of Nazi memorabilia.

In a case that pitted U.S. freedom of speech rights against European anti-hate group statutes, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling that had rejected French plaintiffs attempts to enforce French laws against U.S. companies in U.S. courts.

See here for some background, and a prediction by at least one wise guy attorney that — at least in the Ninth Circuit — turns out to be wrong.
