California police have raided the home of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen, and seized his computers. Chen posted Gizmodo's review of Apple's next-generation iPhone, which had been left in a bar by a staff member (previously). Media reports say that police are considering criminal charges against the person who sold the phone to Gizmodo. Assuming that the police were not investigating Chen himself for breaking the law, the case raises the question of whether bloggers such as Chen are journalists under the law.
