Wikileaks Makes Members Sign This Nondisclosure Agreement

by | 12th, May 2011

JULIAN Assange’s Wikileaks is all about keeping itself secret and preventing leaks:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange now makes his associates sign a draconian nondisclosure agreement that, among other things, asserts that the organization’s huge trove of leaked material is “solely the property of WikiLeaks,” according to a report Wednesday.

It owns leaked material?

“You accept and agree that the information disclosed, or to be disclosed to you pursuant to this agreement is, by its nature, valuable proprietary commercial information,” the agreement reads, “the misuse or unauthorized disclosure of which would be likely to cause us considerable damage.”

If you do leak a leak, you could be fined…£12 million. Still, that’s better than a life in jail like Bradley Manning, right? And who leaked the document about not leaking Wikileaks documents…
