Your Constitutional Rights under the First Amendment
Intellectual freedom refers to your right to have and express your own opinion concerning intellectual ideas, theories, and conclusions. Those ideas, whether expressed in speech, through electronic means, through books, publications, lectures, or other media which do not violate laws, such as those relating to libel, slander, copyrights, or obscenity, may be held and put forth by individuals freely. Intellectual freedom involves a broad range of issues, from academic and scientific theories to one's own personal ideas concerning traditional values, how to raise a family, or the sanctity of life.

Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Under Article 19, "everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive, and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers." Intellectual freedom covers a wide spectrum of areas, such as academic freedom, civil freedom, scientific freedom, and political freedom. Freedom from censorship in books, film, lectures, newspapers, and other media is also covered under intellectual freedom, providing these forums do not violate libel, slander, copyright, or obscenity laws. Statements of intellectual freedom are often provided by library associations, who promote the rights of individuals to have freedom of access to all ideas, questions, and causes and from all sides of any issue.
