Citizen Media Law Project Launches Legal Threats Database
Interactive Archive of Legal Threats Against Internet Users Encourages User Input and Commentary
Washington, DC - The Citizen Media Law Project (CMLP) today unveiled its new Legal Threats Database, a catalog of the growing number of lawsuits, cease and desist letters, and other legal challenges faced by those engaging in online speech. This publicly accessible database -- already containing hundreds of entries -- will provide lawyers, citizen journalists, and mainstream media alike with a valuable resource for assessing the validity and possible outcomes of legal threats to online speech, based on actual cases and legal actions.
