Doing Business With Leaks

Wikileaks has been the the news a lot lately. There has been plenty of discussion about whether the founder (Assange) has committed crimes or whether he was exercising free speech rights. That debate may go on for a while.

However, whether or not Wikileaks survives, we may be entering a new era where private communications can not be considered truly private. New groups of freedom fighters may seek to steal private corporate or government information in order to make it public. Others will retaliate by trying to block the websites of those doing the releasing.

Will this change the way we do corporate business? State diplomacy?
