Cox v. New Hampshire, 312 U.S. 569 (1941), was a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States held that, although the government cannot regulate the contents of speech, it can place reasonable time, place, and manner restrictions on speech for the public safety. Also, that every parade or procession on public streets had to have a license and organizers had to pay a fee. Excerpted from Cox v. New Hampshire on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
