If Assange is able, by the U.S. law, to take digital content which was stolen, and use it for personal use without retribution, does that same law also protect those people who download music (stolen by someone else) the same freedom?
Seems like theft of digital data is either against the law or is it not.
Perhaps one of our glorious leaders can clarify this issue.
If you want Assange, just get him on DRM/Copyright infringement. One count for each document.
