A man filed a lawsuit against the United Kingdom, after he was put in prison for walking naked in public.
Now, 55-year-old Stephen Gough who has spent seven years in prison for being naked in public, has lost his lawsuit that he filed with the European Court of Human Rights.
A judge told Gough that he has to respect the feelings of other people.
Gough, also known as "The Naked Rambler" for his attempt to walk the length of the country wearing nothing but a hat and a backpack, was convicted 30 times for public order disturbances.
Gough of Eastleigh, Hampshire, argued before the European Court of Human Rights, that freedom of speech gave him the right to be nude in public.
“Since Gough had chosen to be naked in public in order to give expression to his opinion as to the inoffensive nature of the human body, his public nudity could be seen as a form of expression, which fell within the ambit of Article 10 (freedom of expression).
“However, Gough was under a general duty to respect the laws of Scotland, and he should have pursued his desire to bring about change in accordance with those laws.
“He had many other avenues for expressing his opinion on nudity or for initiating a public debate on the subject,” the court said in its ruling.

United Kingdom's Air Accidents Investigation Branch said that the pilot then used his right hand to regain control of the yoke.
