Automattic backs WordPress bloggers in court

Parker Higgins:

The blogging platform WordPress.com has taken the unusual -- and welcome -- step of going to court to defend its users against bogus copyright claims aimed at silencing their speech on the platform. Automattic, WordPress's parent company, has joined two separate lawsuits that seek to hold the would-be censors of legitimate lawful speech accountable for their attempts.

Good on Automattic. This stuff is getting ever more important.
