For Free Speech Week, Halloween & Plan Your Epitaph Day re Free Speech Issues from Video Tombstones
Imagine some of the Free Speech issues that might arise from beyond the grave once Video Tombstones start appearing in cemeteries on a regular basis. They say "Dead men tell no tales"...Well, not anymore
For Halloween (10/31), AND
For Plan Your Epitaph Day (11/2/21)
Imagine some of the Free Speech issues that might arise from beyond the grave once Video Tombstones start appearing in cemeteries on a regular basis...
"Video tombstones will have a tremendous impact on many aspects of society. They will also create some fascinating free speech issues," according to Robert Barrows of San Mateo, California.
Barrows is the inventor of a video tombstone called the Video Enhanced Gravemarker (U.S. Patent #7,089,495). You can see more about the video tombstone at www.barrows.com/
HERE ARE SOME OF THE FREE SPEECH ISSUES WE MAY HAVE TO DEAL WITH FROM STORIES THAT MIGHT BE TOLD FROM VIDEO TOMBSTONES:
1) What if someone confesses to a crime or makes an incrimination?
2) What if they say something slanderous?
3) What if they say something that causes emotional stress?
4) What if they say something anti-governmental?
5) What if they leak state secrets?
6) And, what can you do if they say something that is true or untrue or not so nice about you?
*How can you pull the plug and whom can you sue?
*Worse yet, how can you collect?
And, as long as we are on the subject of things that people might say from beyond the grave through their video tombstone, what kinds of things would you say from your own video tombstone, and will it be truth or lies?
"There are many sides to every story, and even the mildest among us may have some of the wildest stories to tell," says Barrows.
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS WOULD WE HEAR FROM YOUR OWN VIDEO TOMBSTONE?
Along these lines, Barrows has also written a book based on stories told through video tombstones. The book is called "Cemetery of Lies."
Cemetery of Lies is a collection of intimate secret confessions, as told from beyond the grave, through video tombstones.
The stories are about life and love, sex and romance, good and evil, success and money, and Heaven and Hell,with insights and advice about almost every aspect of our lives. "Cemetery of Lies is an easy read for a mass audience and the writing is sexy, provocative and humorous, too."
