A California court recently ordered that the whistleblower site Wikileaks.org be removed from the Internet after a Swiss bank said the site had posted information about its offshore activities.
Wikileaks allows its users to anonymously post government and corporate documents to the pubic. The Swiss banking group Julius Baer said several hundred of its documents were posted to the site.
A judge ordered the domain registrar that controls Wikileaks to remove all traces of the site from its servers and turn over Wikileaks’ account information.
The site’s administrators said the court order was “unconstitutional” and that the site had been “forcibly censored,” the BBC reported.
