Legal Threats Database Launched


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.

Center for Citizen Media Press Release

The Citizen Media Law Project is an affiliate of both Harvard’s Berkman Center and the Center for Citizen Media.

There is as well an associated Citizen Media Law Project blog, which most recently has an audio entry on the recent press clampdown in Pakistan.
