A huge victory for EFF, Stanford’s CIS, those famous Swarthmore students, our own Derek Slater — and frankly everyone who is interested in the principles behind the First Amendment — as Diebold has filed with the court to indicate that it wishes at this point neither to sue those who posted the e-voting-related documents on the Web nor to pursue further the DMCA notices filed with ISPs to require take-down (via Donna and others). Fingers crossed that the court approves.
An excellent decision. Bravo, in particular, to those who put themselves in harm’s way for an important principle, and to those who stood behind them. (See Prof. Lessig’s post for what you should do about it).
