Court shields Web sites

Published May 26, 2006, 12:00pm

A California appeals court ruled Friday (May 26, 2006) that independent Web publishers should be treated as journalists under the state constitution.

Here's the relevant section:

"A publisher, editor, reporter or other person connected with or employed upon a newspaper, magazine, or other periodical publication...shall not be adjudged in contempt by a judicial, legislative or administrative body, or any other body having the power to issue subpoenas, for refusing to disclose the source of any information procured...for publication...or for refusing to disclose any unpublished information obtained or prepared in gathering, receiving or processing of information for communication to the public."
