More About "The Slants"

NPR's Nina Totenburg presents the case about the rock group The Slants (Lee v. Tam) on All Things Considered just after oral arguments on Wednesday. You can find the report here. 3 min 58 sec, transcript available. You can also find the transcript of the oral arguments, but not the recording, here. Lots of conditionals ("Could the government...") and hypotheticals ("if it was based on viewpoint..." "If our client had sought to register... "Let's say you had a government program..." "If you were to use...").
The recording of the oral arguments and a very useful transcript that scrolls above the recording line can be found here.
