A Blast From The Past? Ontario Wind Resistance Moves Content To Icelandic Servers

...for free speech reasons.  Essentially they're worried that wind companies like Nextera might sue them for defamation/trade-mark infringement, and think that having their content out of country will somehow prevent this from happening.

If the move sounds familiar, that's because it is:

Conn Esq Web Design was originally intended to be a corporation offering internet design and programming services, holding Free Dominion as an example of its production. But in the past year the corporation has begun to see ownership of Free Dominion as too much of a potential liability because the website has become a target for individuals and government organizations determined to attack freedom of speech, using a variety of methods at their disposal. 

Considering the political climate in Canada today, Conn Esq Web Design Ltd. has made the corporate decision to sell Free Dominion to Liberty News Service Inc. of Panama City, Panama.Liberty News Service’s corporate mission is to buy websites from individuals and corporations living in countries where free speech is under attack, and protect those websites from being shut down or seized by oppressive governments. 

And we all know how that worked out.  Essentially, if the OWR owners or any of their readers use the site to defame a wind company and get sued for it, they're hooped if they're living in Canada.

But let them find out the hard way.
