Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "Julian Assange’s investors are in the process of purchasing a boat to move Wikileaks servers offshore in an attempt to evade prosecution from U.S. law enforcement, FoxNews.com has learned. Multiple sources within the hacker community with knowledge of day-to-day Wikileaks activities say Assange's financial backers have been working behind the scenes on the logistics of moving the servers to international waters.
One possible location: the Principality of Sealand, a rusty, World War II-era, former anti-aircraft platform off the coast of England in the North Sea. Based on a 1968 British court ruling that the facility is outside the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom, Sealand's owner has declared the facility a sovereign state, or "micro-nation.""

Seems like a bad idea for Sealand (1)

This seems like a terrible idea. Sovereign nations can be "invaded" unless there are treaties in place to stop it. So far, nobody has cared enough about Sealand to do anything. Hosting wikileaks seems like a bad idea for them.
