    Recall that Section 973 e of the USA 1917 Espionage Act makes retention of classified material illegal. Yes this affects journalists. But, it also affects every library on the planet which holds archival material from the New York Times, Washington Post, etc..

    Think about that.

      Actually, the newspapers themselves hold copies of their publications. Thus, prosecute all the newspapers too.

    Following John Pilger’s description of the glass cage in the courtroom, I am wondering what the rules are regarding images from the courtroom for public dissemination. It is the practice in courts of law in Australia to permit hand sketches to be made from inside the courtroom. Would this be possible during these proceedings? Is it even permitted to distribute such images made by anyone from either within or outside the court?

      Only courtroom sketches are permitted in the Assange hearing.
