Gulf Keystone Petroleum (GUKYF.PK +1.5%) obtains an injunction blocking Spencer Freeman from writing about the company after his comments on message boards and Twitter caused its shares to fall. The posts about a deal with Exxon and a potential share sale were “fantasy” that damaged share prices, according to court documents.

    One might think the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution would apply here in some way?

    Seems like the drift is toward free speech provided you don't annoy any scared cows. Don't think we should water down the first amendment because some folks are more enamored with fantacies than facts.

    First amendment doesn't cover yelling fire in a crowded theatre. Sounds like coverage under libel laws. Some investors were hurt.
