Wall Street Journal Leaks: Try Your Luck, Leakers!


The Wall Street Journal launches its own version of WikiLeaks, called SafeHouse, soliciting secret documents from would-be leakers.

Gawker discusses both the weak security in its initial launch (which the Journal says it will fix), and some small print you might want to think of before you leak:

 unlike Wikileaks, SafeHouse includes a doozy of a caveat in its Terms of Use:

"Except when we have a separately negotiated confidentiality agreement… we reserve the right to disclose any information about you to law enforcement authorities or to a requesting third party, without notice, in order to comply with any applicable laws and/or requests under legal process, to operate our systems properly, to protect the property or rights of Dow Jones or any affiliated companies, and to safeguard the interests of others."
