No More Chilling Effects Please, I mean S'il Vous Plait

In France, Jean-Yves tells of a story where a really lousy online store site, known by all to be crooked and take a customer's money and not deliver the goods they purchased has sued two web guys who put up a site to discuss their dishonest practices. Check it out. Also, Doc's been blogging about it.

Meanwhile, at a conference in May I met Diane Cabell from Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. She is involved in their Chilling Effects project which helps web folks and bloggers defend their first amendment rights to speak freely on their sites and not be told to remove content or face lawsuits. It's a good site to go visit and learn about your rights.
