Swiss Bank Julius Baer Tries to Muzzle Wikileaks for Leaking Their Money Laundering Activities

The Swiss bank Julius Baer apparently did the Internet no-no. They tried to take down the public service wikileaks.org domain. The latter blew the whistle on the money laundering activities that a Julius Baer branch was supposed to have been involved in. Julius Baer got a Californian judge to order the domain registrar to remove the domain from its DNS. Stupid move. Haven’t these big bullies corporations learned anything about the Internet? The moment you persecute a small fry, a huge backlash results. As one commentator said, not only has the move been completely ineffective – there are tons of mirror sites now available online. They have actually increased publicity to the entire scandal.

And now when one thinks of Julius Baer, one associates it with money laundering.
