I have a media website that is hosted on servers that are located in America (California). In Australia freedom of the press is much more restricted, than the US. In [Lange v. ABC](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lange_v_Australian_Broadcasting_Corporation) (current precedent), it was ruled that "The Constitution does not confer personal rights as to the implied freedom of political communication." Everything I publish is based on fact and intended to be true, but some of the time it may be false. My published material is encrypted and sent to an American server and the users only interact with said server. The server acts as a proxy. The information only exists in Australia as a "thought" (it is only shared with others once it is hosted on the US server) and you can't be prosecuted based on a thought. So my question is: If the content is hosted in the US, am I protected by the first amendment? I suspect that I'm not protected, but I think I should be.
