The Citizen Media Law Project at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, Harvard Law School, launched in the fall of 2006. The project offers legal education and resources for individuals and organizations involved in citizen media.
Their ‘beta’ website went live in May 2007. Right now, it emphasizes US advocacy opportunities, and references US laws. I contacted the Project with a comment that it would be great if the advocacy section expanded to offer suggestions/best practices/information-sharing among citizen journalists in countries where citizens have little power against the law.
David Ardia is the director of the Project:
“The first phase of our work will focus on U.S. law, but our goal is to cover these issues from an international perspective. To that end, we are working
to expand our international coverage on our blog and, assuming we can find the funding, to add country-focused sections to our legal guide.”
