    Within Western democracies there seemed to be no accord on where the limits
    of freedom of the press should be. The history of freedom of the press is a
    history of the debates on the limits and borders of a free press. There is no
    “original meaning of freedom of the press,” a formula which is often used in
    order to give weight to an argument. Our modern understanding of freedom of
    the press is the result of different social developments in the nineteenth century,
    which explain the different limits for a free press. Personal rights and/or state
    interests seem to have different levels of importance in legal systems and
    perceptions in Germany and the English-speaking world. There is a stronger
    emphasis in the Anglo-American world upon limiting the free press for reasons
    of state security than in the Federal Republic of Germany, and vice versa where
    personal rights are involved. These differences are explained by the fact that in
    the English speaking world John Stuart Mill’s argument for freedom dominated
    the debate while his justification based on Utilitarianism never prevailed in
    Germany. This paper will explain the different development.
