Temperature's A-Risin' The Chilling Effects Clearinghouse provides lots of answers for those interested in knowing and protecting their online rights. A joint project of the EFF and clinics from the Harvard, Stanford, Boalt Hall (Berkeley) and University of San Francisco law schools, this site primarily addresses copyright issues surrounding all kinds of online activity, including linking, protest, parody and criticism, and everybody's favorite: the DMCA. There's also a good trademark section. I'm glad to see my alma mater participating in such an endeavor, and also operating its Samuelson Law, Technology and Public Policy Clinic, which helps clients in the no-man's-land between public interest and intellectual property rights. -Also on the side of the good guys: the Stanford Law School Center For Internet and Society, which defends satirist Zack Exley against trademark dilution claims from CNN. (Figured some of you - now, I'm not naming names - might want to save the link.)
