Espionage and Sedition Acts

The Espionage and Sedition Acts of 1917, were laws passed in the United States during World War I. The Acts outlawed utterances detrimental to the war effort, and the postmaster general[?] was permitted to exclude seditious material from the mails. The laws were ruled constitutional in the United States Supreme Court case Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919).
