UPDATE: According to Gun guru/3-gun competitor/fmr. DHS risk assessment analyst/self-professed IT-geek, Nick Leghorn, says the above Pirate Bay documentary shines light onto some of the issues that Cody Wilson had to contend with.

That's why the criticism to his 'no take down'-'backdown'-accusation is unfair.

Plus was the search engine project, that hasn't lifted off the ground yet. is the one with ITAR restrictions coming down on him.

Is Defense Distributed “Wussing Out?”

Posted on May 10, 2013 by Nick Leghorn

Back when Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed started up their DefCad downloads, they made a promise. Cody looked square in the camera and promised that there would be no takedowns. Ever. And set the vow to some trendy music. But when the rubber actually met the road and Cody was faced with the full might of the U.S. government if he didn’t comply with a takedown request, they folded. They pulled the files, like every other depository has before them. On the surface, it seems like DefDist isn’t living up to its promises. But was that really a lack of personal convictions and flinching when the moment of truth arrived? Or is Defense Distributed simply biding its time until they’re in a more sustainable position to thumb their nose at the government? . . .

When I was talking with Cody, he mentioned some servers in a western European country that they had set up. He quickly moved on to other topics, but that was all I needed to hear. My day job is doing network security for a large hosting company, so not only did I understand what he meant and what he’s trying to do, but also how hard that is and how long it takes to set up.

For an idea of what Cody was hinting at, let’s take a look at another popular website that continues to host content despite numerous takedown requests and even a trial: The Pirate Bay.
