I feel like finally, after everything that’s happened, we get a bit of vindication in the media as Canada’s own Globe and Mail steps up to the plate and becomes the first (and thus far only) major, mainstream media outlet to get it right.
If I could clarify just one thing about the interview is the very last paragraph when I said:
“Our lawyers have basically told us that if they want to shut us down they’ll show up with an injunction and we’ll have to follow it and then try and have it overturned later,”
When I read it online tonight I realized that the particular wording may spook some easyDNS members, in that it could be taken to imply that if “they” (the government, the powers-that-be, Joe Lieberman, Hillary Clinton or Rush Limbaugh) want to shut “us” = “easyDNS” down….and that is not what I meant.
In my mind there is no danger of easyDNS being shut down. What I meant when I said it was this:
If “they” want US to shut THEM (Wikileaks) down, then they’ll show up with an injunction, yada yada yada.
Were that to happen, we would likely need to comply first, and then seek to overturn it or have it set aside.
We have been in touch with a law firm who specializes in litigation, are renowned as the best litigators in the country, happen to be clients of ours, and are up to speed on the situation and are standing by. Hopefully we won’t need them.
