The article analyses the 27 May 2014 judgment of the European Court of Human Rights in the case of Mustafa Erdoʇan and Others v. Turkey. The author reviews the circumstances that lead to a civil case on violated dignity in Turkey. In addition, the article also describes the legal circumstances from which a national problem became an international one. The article also presents the entirety of the obiter dicta arguments that determined that Turkey had violated Article 10 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The article contains a presentation and analysis of one of the dissenting opinions - Prof. Egidijus Ku¯ris and his colleagues. Agreeing with the dissenting opinion, the author holds that the dissenting opinion emphasizes the conceptual problem of the relation between academic responsibility and freedom of self-expression. Although this problem is not reflected in the system of the obiter dicta arguments, it remains a problem of the social environment and a part of the discourse on the concept of freedom of self-expression.
