Abstract
A recent decision by the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) confirms the limits of freedom of expression, in Germany, in relation to the publication of Nazi-symbols. A German blogger complained under Article 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR) about his criminal conviction for the offence of using the symbols of unconstitutional organisations. But the ECtHR recently found no violation of his right to freedom of expression.
