Selling Sex, Even Where It's Not Legal

Naturally, Copywrite Ink's post. Selling Sex: Nevada Brothels, caught my eye.
What is Coyote Publishing et. al. v. Heller? It is a lawsuit filed by Allen Lichtenstein, general counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada on behalf of several newspapers, that sought to void two state statutes that prohibited brothel advertising in counties where prostitution is illegal.

...this new ruling, which I have yet to form an opinion about, seems to suggest legal businesses have a right to advertise even where their products or services are illegal.

Hey MW,

Thanks for the highlight. Yes, it is a tricky one to form an opinion about. Might make you want to move your marketing experience to Nevada though. ;) Best, Rich

I've had a LOT of problems because escort work is seen as grey area at best, criminal at worst.

Rich, I guess I'm like the tallest nail ~ I prefer to take my hits out here in mainstream culture. If legit business, profitable businesses, can't be accepted by the very capitalistic society which makes the companies wealthy, then what does that say about sexual health, freedom and even the nature of business?

Amanda, I know. I hear ya ;)
