Signing does not mean a thing because the European Parliament still has to decide whether to give its consent, and when a single nation asks the European court of Justice, or the Constitutional court then it's dead, because it is against EU Treaties/constitutions. it's not too late to get involved.

When you consider how helpful this is for recruitment and winning the hearts and minds of the programming elite this program is actually cheap. I would recommend governments and supranational organisations to do the same.
This case is not about rape but a case of intercourse without consent which qualifies as a kind of crime in Sweden. Of course the Swedish prosecutor acts over the top and that is very questionable, including the smear to accuse him as a rapist in public.
DB says he estimated its about 3500 documents and he has no access himself to the actual data, probably they are encrypted. The documents are from summer 2010.
DB adds some info why he believed in the merits of the young women's case, regardless of the prosecutor interpol extradiction farce. Simply because JA bragged about fathering children.
There is a difference between "taking" and "having in your possession" and "locking Assange out".
DB says its the documents they got in the interim. You can expect a public wikileaks speaker like DB to get documents for wikileaks via geeks.
One of the reasons for leaving wl was an alleged cooperation of Assange with a holocaust denier. That is an impossible thing to do in Germany, it doesn't even matter if Daniel Berg is a jew or not. You simply can't support that.
Where DB said he has not even actual access to the material himself.
"The guy sabatoged their website and took data to start up his own competing site, then writes a book to advertise it."
The "evidence" for that is a misinterpretation of an excerpt from his book.
According to DB
- approx 3500 documents
- submission system was disabled by its developer (not DB) because it was insecure. Developer is another WL defector. DB only revealed in his book that he was aware of that.
- he does not intent to use the documents for openleaks but wants a safe method to return the data
This Domschiet-Berg guy did something that compromised the anonymity of people who submit things to the Wikileaks website.
Who ever claimed that?
Domscheit-Berg said the programmer of the WL submission system disabled it and took it with him because it was insecure and JA was using it in an irresponsible manner. The programmer is another defector of WL.
It is very typical tactics for an experienced bully to accuse the other side of the same. The bully is not DB.
The issue is that they stole the information and aren't guaranteeing the sources the same level of anonymity that Wikileaks was promising.
What is your evidence for the claim they stole information?
What is your evidence for the claim they weren't guaranteeing the sources the same level of anonymity.
What makes you assume or imply that DB was to about to publish these document on his openleaks platform while he constantly told the opposite.
So its wrong to steal documents from someone
What makes you believe DB stole documents from WL?
Wikileaks wasn't first. It is just a mediawiki site which publishes leaks. The whole submission infrastructure, the concepts and so forth are much older.
And there is Cryptome.
I do, it was a great game.
