Recent events on the internet, like the trouble Jason Kottke has had with Sony, point to the need for a way for webloggers in the cross-hairs of well financed companies to defend themselves in the courtroom.

Jeff Jarvis called for a Blogger Legal Defense Society and others seem to agree
I'd like to help, but IANAL (I am not a lawyer) and IANAWD (I am not a web designer). What I can do is host a web site and cover the costs of it. As a result I registered wldf.org (Weblogger Legal Defense Fund) and set up the hosting for it as well.
Pease go take a look at wldf.org.Posted by michael at December 08, 2004 10:12 PM
