Categories of speech that are given lesser or no protection by the First
Amendment include obscenity
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_obscenity_law> (as determined
by the Miller test <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miller_test>), fraud
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraud>, child pornography, speech integral
to illegal conduct,[15]
that incites imminent lawless action
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imminent_lawless_action>, and regulation of
commercial speech such as advertising.[16]
these limited areas, other limitations on free speech balance rights to
free speech and other rights, such as rights for authors over their works (
copyright <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright>), protection from
imminent or potential violence against particular persons, restrictions on
the use of untruths to harm others (slander
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slander> and libel
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libel>), and communications while a person
is in prison. When a speech restriction is challenged in court, it is
presumed invalid and the government bears the burden of convincing the
court that the restriction is constitutional.[18]
