+ - Wikileaks swedish servers not protected by law?->

In Sweden, if a journalist reveals sources without their approval, the reporter can be sent to jail." ...
Wikileaks is benefiting form Sweden's basic law "Grundlag" on the freedom of print information, because it also guarantees the anonymity of sources in digital media, say sources at the European Parliament.

In Sweden, if a website registers with the public authorities and can prove it has an editor-in-chief, then it can also be protected under the law, argues the parliamentary source.

However it seems Wikileaks never registered with the public authorities (article in swedish), and thus is not protected by the freedom of print information basic law even if they do have an editor-in-chief."
