Indymedia servers mysteriously reappear, but questions remain

Rackspace Managed Hosting, the San Antonio-based company that manages two Indymedia servers seized by the US government last Thursday, said yesterday that the servers have been returned and are now available to go back online.

EFF will take legal action to find out what really happened to Indymedia’s servers and ensure that Internet media are protected from egregious First Amendment violations like this in the future.

EFF, like the National Lawyers Guild, does a huge amount of important, often behind-the-scenes work. They are well-financed and dedicated. I’m glad they’re there.
