How freedom of speech is used on social media has been called into question after the Supreme Court threw out a previous conviction.
A Pennsylvania man was convicted of making threats on Facebook to his estranged wife using rap lyrics.
One said, "there's only one way to love you but a thousand ways to kill you."
He went on to threaten law enforcement and also threatened a school shooting.
The narrow victory for civil liberties groups for freedom of speech has many concerned and say this is a green light for cyber bullying and domestic violence via social media.
Albany Commissioner and Darton professor Roger Marietta says, "If I threaten you with some kind of code language that I take from an Eminem song does that make it O.K.? I don't really think so. How do we as a people decide what is going to far."
