Research and Response
The DMLP's central vantage point on issues affecting the online content industry enables us to detect urgent legal issues as they arise. Our attorney and client networks, together with our tracking of legal threats, serve as an “early warning system” for questions affecting the digital journalism and publishing community. Through our Research and Response initiative, we become involved in these pressing issues and develop relevant legal resources in an informed and timely manner. This page provides access to our work on various issues, including white papers and issue guides, participation in litigation as an amicus curiae, conferences and speaking events, advisory work, and media appearances.
The DMLP coordinates and participates in amicus curiae (friend of the court) briefs in cases raising important First Amendment and intellectual property issues. In cooperation with the Harvard Law School Cyberlaw Clinic, also hosted at the Berkman Center, the DMLP has had a substantial role in preparing more than twenty legal briefs, including briefs directed to the United States Supreme Court, the Illinois Supreme Court, the New Hampshire Supreme Court, and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. See our Amicus Efforts page for more information.
