<-Please fill in the form to the side, including as much information as you want to give to the Chilling Effects clearinghouse.

Use the "Keep Private" checkboxes to indicate any information you do not want shown to the public. Private data will not be shown in the public database, but will only be visible to the participating organizations (law school clinics and the Electronic Frontier Foundation). By default, names and street addresses will be kept private. Please read our privacy policy for more information. (privacy policy will open in a new window)

Unless one of the clinics has specifically agreeed to represent you individually, which the clinics may do on a case-by-case basis, there is no attorney-client relationship with you.

Please understand that the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse is only as useful as you help us to make it.

To help us serve you better, we ask that you submit only notices you have received, not items you have heard about second-hand, and that you add only information whose accuracy you can verify. We may mask additional identifying information before making the notice publicly viewable.
