Via Media Bloggers Association:

In what the EFF called a “major victory” for bloggers and citizen journalists, The Sixth Appellate Court of the Court of Appeal of the State of California rejected Apple Computer’s attempt to force disclosure of sources by two blogs (AppleInsider and PowerPage.org) by ruling that bloggers and citizen journalists are entitled to the same legal protections as journalists working for corporate media entities. Specifically, the bloggers were entitled to protection under the California reporter’s shield law.

I’m glad to hear this, having registered an opinion in this matter before. (Link to old CPB site; latest one has had its posts blocked after I ended it.)
