Via Reuters: Court overturns CBS fine over Janet Jackson flash

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit said the Federal Communications Commission had “arbitrarily and capriciously departed from its prior policy” that exempted fleeting broadcast material from actionable indecency violations.

Well. I am so relieved!

But, the real question now is whether said nekkedness will go to SCOTUS?
