Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer said on Tuesday, Sept. 15, 2010, that globalization may change the way the First Amendment applies in the United States.

Breyer -- appearing on ABC's "Good Morning America" to promote his book "Making Our Democracy Work" -- made the comments to anchor George Stephanopoulos.

Breyer pointed to Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes' opinion in a 1919 case testing the limits of First Amendment protection. Holmes argued that shouting "fire!" in a crowded theater would not be protected speech because people could be trampled in the rush to escape a burning theater.

"And what is the crowded theater today?" Breyer asked. "What is being trampled to death?"

On Tuesday morning, Breyer said any new interpretation of the First Amendment and the "crowded theater" benchmark will be decided over time through jurisprudence.
