Defamation exists as an exception to freedom of speech. It works to strike a balance between the right to freedom of speech and the right to reputation. Thus, while exercising your right to express yourself as you deem fit, such exercise of your right should not destroy the reputation of another person.
Defamation can be in the form of libel or slander. Libel refers to written and published defamatory statements. Slander, on the other hand, refers to only spoken statements that destroy the reputation of another.
The fact that you are free to express yourself without any form of government censorship does not mean that you can make obscene statements or publications.
The protection under the First Amendment does not cover expressions that showcase sexual content and other forms of obscenity in an offensive manner. As a result, this exception prohibits words or images that would be offensive to viewers and young persons.
Your right to freedom of speech is an established right. This right does not protect you for making false statements under oath with the intent to deceive, mislead, and sway judgment in your favor.
Perjury, which means lying under oath, is a criminal offense. Where the lies also affect the reputation of another person, an action in defamation is born.
Sedition refers to statements or actions that threaten the state or government. It is an offense to make statements that incite people to revolt against an established system of government. While you are free to express yourself, you are not free to stir up a revolution against the established seat of government; neither can you seek to overthrow a form of government.
Threats of terrorism against the established government are also acts that could attract legal sanctions, thereby acting as an exception to your right to freedom of speech or expression.
The First Amendment does not protect statements that urge others to resort to the use of force as a means of achieving a particular political or social objective.
Other exceptions to the right to freedom of speech are blackmail, fighting words, threats, fraud, speech violating intellectual property, child pornography.
