Indymedia.us fights off bogus FBI subpoena and gag order
by via EFF
Another police fishing expedition has been fought successfully over the course of the past year by one of the Indymedia.us server admins and the good folks at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), largely in secret due to dodgy gag orders (which actually didn't have any real legal standing to begin with).
EFF's brief on the incident: http://www.eff.org/wp/anatomy-bogus-subpoena-indymedia Note the emphasis on best practices: never log IP addresses. All online service providers should pay attention to this and make sure they are protecting themselves in a similar fashion.
