New Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) Case to Protect Free Speech Rights of Online Archive Public.Resource.org

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has filed a complaint on behalf of Public.Resource.Org — under signature of Lead Attorney for EFF Corynne McSherry, a Stanford Law School graduate — in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California:

Public.Resource.Org v. Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association, Inc. [SMACNA] (N.D. Cal. Dkt. No. 13-00815)

EFF has:

asked a federal judge today to protect the free speech rights of an online archive of laws and legal standards after a wrongheaded copyright claim forced the removal of a document detailing important technical standards required by the federal government and several states.

Please see: “Free Speech Battle Over Publication of Federal Law” (February 22, 2013)
