Cockfighting on Web Enters Legal Arena

Now that cockfighting is banned in all fifty states, what happens when a cockfight is filmed somewhere where it's legal and then broadcast or sold on the Internet? The Washington Post has a report on the recent lawsuit filed South Florida in defense of a such a website on First Amendment grounds. While the case might present some interesting arguments from an academic standpoint, I'm inclined to agree with this opinion.

For more info on cockfighting, see the HSUS factsheet.
