Does anyone care to comment on the reason the court granted the injunction without representation from Wikileaks or why BJB's legal team failed to realise the site could be accessed by IP number (with plenty of people willing to hand that number out)? Plus it doesn't do a thing to stop the many international mirrors which exist. It seems like the RIAA suing a few individuals hoping to stop global piracy - futile. With luck wikileaks will succeed in it's stated goal to be uncensorable. Random007 - (talk) 16:08, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Analogy[edit]

Deleting a DNS record on a court order to prevent access to contested documents, would be like closing a library to prevent access to a book. They are attempting to deny access to a website because of something it has, not because the site itself is illegal. Cwolfsheep - (talk) 23:00, 19 February 2008 (UTC)
