A titre d’exemple de la fragilité de l’hypertexte et du web, Microsoft et sa MSDN, et ses blogs techniques... On trouve pleins d’adresses sur le web, dans les forums, vers des sites Microsoft... et depuis peu, les contenus datant d’avant 2009 sont devenus injoignables. Aussi bien de la documentation que des téléchargements. Ils ont tout simplement décidé, de toute évidence, de ne pas les maintenir... ce qui rend une bonne partie de ce qui existait introuvable... ce qui parfois est terriblement frustrant.
Et c’est vrai pour de nombreux autres sites... évidemment. Un lien est périssable.
That said, whistle-blowing is a moral decision which is far from being simple. Not only most of the times it can be considered an illegal act (there is a varying degree of legal frameworks on this issue) to obtain restricted information, there is also the question of possible retaliation by the organizations accused, which can include smear campaigns, loss of employment or other forms of harassment. The decision to ‘blow the whistle’ is closely interwoven with strong moral convictions and the practical belief that somewhere, someone might be able to provide a solution to injustice.
Evolution of the practice
In the last phase of the 2oth century and the beginning of the 21st, the dynamics of whistle-blowing have changed deeply, shifting towards new models. In general we can say that with certain projects they have become institutionalized, have an international scope and due to their merging with Internet and hacker culture, many have become more radical in their means. All demonstrate, in an empiric manner, that whistle-blowing is going beyond the traditional model described above.
The success of Wikileaks is an example for these assertions. It is a not-for-profit media organization that since 2006 has been bent on giving the general public access to the inside information of government and private entities around the world, with a varying degree of success but with an unquestioned impact on the practice. Although the publication of the Cablegate in 2010, around 250 thousand classified cables of the U.S. State Department, is considered the biggest leak of U.S. history, providing evidence of widespread corruption in different organizations around the world, its main value is not derived from this fact.
The examples below show that whistle-blowing, originally designed for concrete cases, is becoming closer to the struggle for the simple right to know things, the attitude of these new activists is making information – in a broader sense – free and globally accessible. This trend is becoming a worldwide movement, a transnational and popular community struggling for freedom and autonomy in transparency.
As Coleman stated, in September 2010 “coming in the form of politically motivated DDoS attacks, Anonymous targeted the MPAA (and eventually other organizations and companies) to show support for the famous file-sharing site, The Pirate Bay soon after its servers were DDoSed by an Indian software firm that had been hired by the MPAA to engage in this form of digital privateering”. The important shift came in “December 2010, soon after Wikileaks released a small trove of diplomatic cables, those participating in Operation Payback shifted their energies to engage in the largest and most spectacular set of actions to date. Anonymous did not protest only to register its support to Wikileaks; they launched into action in response to PayPal, Mastercard, and Amazon pulling all support and services for Wikileaks, despite the organization not having been charged with any infraction”.
Leaked Report Reveals Music Industry’s Global Anti-Piracy Strategy | TorrentFreak
A confidential internal report of the music industry outfit IFPI has been inadvertently made available online by the group itself. Penned by their Head of Internet Anti-piracy Operations, the report details the global strategy for the major recording labels of IFPI. Issues covered include everything from #torrent sites to cyberlockers, what behavior IFPI expects of Internet service providers, the effectiveness of site blocking, and how #pirates are accessing unreleased music from industry sources.
pour l’année 2011, plus de 70% de l’acquisition illégale de musique aux USA se fait hors connexion Internet, notamment par le biais d’échange de disque dur, via clé USB ou avec des graveurs. Une claque à la légende du Peer-to-Peer roi, donc, qui secoue le monde de la musique, et remet en questions l’efficacité des dispositifs de lutte contre le piratage aux Etats-Unis. En tout, 65% des acquisitions de musiques seraient illégales

Wikileaks ISP Anonymizes All Customer Traffic To Beat Spying
“In order to neutralize Sweden’s incoming implementation of the European Data Retention Directive, Bahnhof, the Swedish ISP and host of Wikileaks, will run all customer traffic through an encrypted VPN service. Since not even Bahnhof will be able to see what its customers are doing, logging their activities will be impossible. With no logs available to complete their chain of investigation, anti-piracy companies will be very, very unhappy.”
