EFF Fights "Chilling Effects" on Free Speech

In response to a website alleging that Enron owns the GOP, the Republican party of Texas threatened to sue for "copyright infringement." This is only one of hundreds of cases in which corporate and political heavyweights have used legal threats to intimidate legitimate speech on the Internet. Now the Electronic Freedom Foundation, in cooperation with several leading university law schools, has launched the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse to help online users know their rights and to expose efforts at chilling free speech.
