INN would like to thank Kati Hollis for creating this guide.

This guide would not have been possible without the generous help and guidance of Jeff Hermes, Director of the Citizen Media Law Project. The Digital Media Law Project’s Legal Guide was an invaluable resource as well. The guides available on the Reporter’s Committee for Freedom of the Press were also an enormous help in compiling this guide.

INN would also like to thank its members who offered their gracious help in the form of sample contracts and policies; including, the Connecticut Health Investigative Team, ProPublica, MinnPost, NPR, the Florida Center for Investigative Reporting, and Voice of San Diego.
