  1. Umang, you are right about those big companies. But the small whistle-blowers, protestors and even cartoonists will find their leaks or writing suppressed by this method. For example how protest against fee hike has been handled by private unaided schools through defamation cases which have stopped the protests from appearing on internet:
    a. http://www.indianexpress.com/news/gurgaon-school-issues-defamation-threat-for-protesting-fee-hike-say-parents/505865/0 b. http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1166668 c. http://www.expressindia.com/latest-news/student-expulsion-high-court-disposes-of-review-petition/674805/ d. India based private school asks Singapore based parents forum to be shut: http://www.chillingeffects.org/protest/notice.cgi?NoticeID=33101 e. India based police asks US base cartoonist to shut down: http://www.chillingeffects.org/notice.cgi?NoticeID=26127 and it is clear these are all the ways used to shut down protests, cartoonists and others !

  2. The case of torrent-or-pirate-bay-like companies & wikileaks tells us that more you try to control the demon, the more wildly it surfaces back. Ori Brafman talks about similar case studies in ‘The Starfish and the Spider’.
