Blog Legal Dispute Settled

Over at Just Another Pretty Farce, Nashville blogger Katherine Coble reports settlement of what was shaping up to be a nasty legal disupte. You can find more about the situation in earlier postings on her blog, but the main point is that the threatening party agreed — after the intervention of a lawyer for the Media Bloggers Assocation — to drop the matter.

These kinds of things are happening more and more often. It’s a real worry.

People who care about this and have resources to bring to bear on such situations — including the MBA and a soon-to-launch Citizen Media Law Project, a joint venture between this center and the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard — are going to be busy in coming years.
