The Colorado Supreme Court is currently considering a case that could have widespread implications for free speech in the social media age. Communication Lecturer Matthew Kaskavich believes that companies hold the true power when it comes to determining what protected speech is. "Social media has always had this sort of a financial incentive to kind of allow people to say whatever they want and have this free and open platform," Kaskavich said. "They have avoided dealing with free speech issues up until recently. That's because they want to make money."
