Speaking of free speech...

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

Here's the Author Advocate Defense Fund, set up to help pay legal expenses for the folks who have been sued by Barbara Bauer.

Just so you can see what the suit is about, here's a link to the documents available at the EFF. They were defending Wikimedia (parent of Wikipedia), which was dismissed from the suit the other day. If you feel like slogging through the 35-page complaint you'll see links to some of the particular blog postings and web pages that are being cited as containing defamatory material. Some material may have been removed since the complaint was filed. If nothing else, you'll get some insight into the legal system that you won't see on Boston Legal.

The Author Advocate Defense Fund page also links to some background material, for those who don't feel like going through pages of legalese.

If you have a couple of extra bucks to spare, please consider donating.
