Canada Censorship Crime The Courts

Jury Decides Artist's Gory Images On Website Are Art 289

New submitter wilbrod writes "A Quebec special effects artist charged with corrupting morals has been found not guilty in a case that tested the boundaries of creative expression and Canadian obscenity laws. He was charged with three counts of corrupting morals by distributing, possessing and producing obscene material. During the trial, Couture argued his gory works, roughly a thousand images and two short videos that appeared on Couture's website, Inner Depravity, should be considered art. The material in question depicts gruesome murders, torture, sexual abuse, assaults and necrophilia — all with young female victims."

    The "ultimate" sacrifice? Jesus had a bad weekend for your sins.

    Well, I don't really feel terribly insulted when a person who can't even spell "individual" and "then" properly calls me sick.

    And an elitist spelling Nazi to boot! My guess is that you have a thing for pedophilia and necrophilia involving female pre-teens. Wow, are you a sick puppy. But I guess this is what comes from a 35 year old overweight Neck Beard like you spending all your time in your mom's basement wearing your dead sisters panties while looking at Japanese Tentacle Porn.

    Sick. Simply sick. Seek help before it's too late.

    Oooh. Transference. Better discuss this with your shrink. Things are getting serious. I sense an epiphany!

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
