A blogger has been jailed in San Francisco after refusing to hand over video he shot at an anti-capitalist march/melee. Josh Wolfe had put an edited version of the video on his blog, but refused to give the tapes over to the law, the NY Times reports:

Mr. Wolf, who posted some of the edited video on his Web site, www.joshwolf.net, and sold some of it to local television stations, met with investigators, who wanted to see the raw video. But Mr. Wolf refused to hand over the tapes, arguing that he had the right as a journalist to shield his sources.

On Tuesday, Judge Alsup disagreed, ruling that the grand jury “has a legitimate need” to see what Mr. Wolf filmed.

His blog is down – but here’s Google’s cached version.
