With the Internet Age, the ability to access and disseminate information has expanded radically. The Internet allows the production and distribution of information to occur more rapidly and at less cost than with a brick-and-mortar publication. WikiLeaks describes itself as a "multi-jurisdictional public service designed to protect whistle-blowers, journalists and activists who have sensitive materials to communicate to the public." Equally important for WikiLeaks is whether the US government can obtain jurisdiction over the group. The reported "founder and chief" of WikiLeaks is an Australian citizen with "no permanent address," and the servers are located overseas.
