Wikileaks Back Online, Raises Questions

Remember when Wikileaks was shut down for posting information about some shady bank practices in the Cayman Islands?

Well, they're back online and ready to serve up information, but some questions are being raised about freedom of speech on the web and what this all could mean moving forward.

The bank argued that the information that was posted contained information about account holders and private information that isn't "newsworthy", but Wikileaks contended, "that’s how you identify who’s been salting away money in accounts."

The judge eventually overruled the previous finding and even implied that once something is on the internet the courts are powerless to stop it.

Where do you stand on free speech on the internet? What if it was your bank account information (though you probably aren't doing anything illegal)?
