In Chapter 1 of the text you read about the Bailey v. Eminem defamation case where the court held Eminemâ€™s lyrics were protected by the First Amendment. Read the article and view the video (the links are listed under Week 1 Additional Learning Resources Required and Week 1 Multimedia Required) to the Pahler v. Slayer case. Respond to the following questions:
- Did the Pahler court use the same reasoning as used in Bailey v. Eminem?
- Should the courtâ€™s decision in Pahler be different because a young girl was murdered?
- Recall the difference between a crime and a tort. Based on these two cases, analyze and discuss whether artists should be held liable for the actions of their fans.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmatesâ€™ postings. Do you agree with their analysis? Discuss with at least two of your classmatesâ€™ the ethical issues raised in this case and if you think the courtsâ€™ decisions in both Bailey and Pahler were correct. Respond to at least two of your classmatesâ€™ posts by Day 7.

Did the Pahler court use the same reasoning as used in Bailey v. Eminem?
The Pahler court did not use the same reasoning that was used in the Bailey v. Eminem case. The reasoning in the Bailey v. Eminem was based solely on first amendment rights, the freedom of speech. Whereas the Pahler case tried to focus more on the marketing aspect. The reason they went this route versus attacking the lyrics is that they knew they would not win the battle against freedom of speech. Therefore, they decided to attack the fact that Slayer was marketing towards teens even though they had a parental advisory label on their record.
Should the courtâ€™s decision in Pahler be different because a young girl was murdered?
I do not believe that the courtâ€™s decision in the Pahler case should be different because there was a young girl murdered. There are several reasons for this viewpoint. The most important reason is that would open the floodgates of every murder charge to be linked to some song, book, or movie. No matter how horrific those acts were, you cannot hold the artist responsible for that. Especially if they put a voluntary parental advisory sticker on their album to warn parents of obscene content.
Recall the difference between a crime and a tort. Based on these two cases, analyze and discuss whether artists should be held liable for the actions of their fans.
Crime and tort often get confused an interchanged. However, a crime is a wrongdoing that hampers society, often intentionally, and is settled in the Criminal Court. Whereas a tort is a wrongdoing that hampers an individual or their property, often due to negligence, and is settled in the Civil Court. Based on these two cases, artists should not be held liable for the actions of their fans. The only time that a party could be held liable for others actions is if they directly tell someone to carry out an act. An artist simply talking about an act, whether it is in a song, book, or movie, cannot and should not be held liable for anyone that interprets that source of media and carries out a crime or tort.

I believe that the court in the Pahler case used the same reasoning as that was used in the Bailey v. Eminem case. While the act of murder is not the same as having your image tarnished I do not think that the decision should have been different. The difference between a crime and a tort is based on the type of offense it is. A crime is usually a wrong doing that falls under state or federal laws and diminishes society as a whole. A tort is a wrong doing that interferes with another person or their property and is known as a civil offense. In the Bailey v. Eminem case, I would classify it as a tort (slander) where the Slayer case was a crime (murder).
As stated by Scott Harrington, the attorney for Slayer, â€œThereâ€™s not a legal position that could be taken that would make the band responsible. Where do you draw the line? You might as well start looking through the library at every book on the shelfâ€ (ABC News, 2014). If we look all around us there is violence, murder and adultery in everything from movies, operas, literature and even the bible. As individuals we are responsible for our own actions and we are protected under the First Amendment on what we produce even though that has limitations such as projecting as fact something that is false (Rogers, 2012, Section 1.1). If all artists where to be responsible for the actions of their fans then it would cripple the artistic communities expressionism. It would be different if someone called for specific violence against a group or individual say at a concert and the fans left and acted on it. Should we hold politicians and other public figures to the same standard? Many people have committed violent acts against a group of people over something that that a politician or other public figure has said.
