The founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, is playing his last card to avoid extradition to Sweden. The UK Supreme Court will hear next February 1st and 2, 2012, the appeal on a specific aspect of the notice of surrender on whether an arrest warrant issued by an attorney dependent of the state can be considered as valid.
According to Bernard Bujold (LeStudio1.com): "No matter what happens to the legal history surrounding Assange, the fact remains that Wikileaks has transformed access to information around the world and it is clear that other organizations or movements will take over from WikiLeaks.
Moreover, we can say that an organization such as Google is a more legitimate and more financially sound but the end result is totally comparable to WikiLeaks, that is a dissemination of information without the filters imposed by policy makers and financiers. In another sense, one can also have Assange compared to Steve Jobs. The two men are of a particular personal character and sometimes very unpleasant, but their actions have revolutionized the modern world. "
