obscenity
the effect of an article to tend to deprive and corrupt persons likely to come into contact with it, according to the Obscene Publications Act 1959 (as amended). The balance against censorship is sought to be maintained by the inclusion of a defence that the publication is justified as being for the public good on the grounds that it is in the interests of science, literature, art or learning, or other subjects of general interest. Perhaps the most celebrated prosecution was R v . Penguin Books [1961] Crim. LR 176, the article in question being D. H. Lawrence's novel Lady Chatterley's Lover. The defence showed the moral attitude of the legislation and, indeed, showed the prosecution to be rather out of touch with prevailing attitudes to morality, the prosecution asking the jury to decide based upon the following test: 'Is it a book that you would even wish your wife or your servants to read?' Nonetheless, the Act is still used, although with more subtlety.
