WikiLeaks got a New Rival

Former WikiLeaks supporters at odds with founder Julian Assange will shortly launch OpenLeaks, a rival project aiming to get secret documents directly to media.

"I can confirm that we will be operating under the name 'OpenLeaks'," former Icelandic WikiLeaks member Herbert Snorrason said.

Unlike WikiLeaks, OpenLeaks will not publish leaked documents directly online but instead make leaks available to partner media.

"This is not a single website that would gather material and publish it but rather a system provider to which people can upload information anonymously," Mr Snorrason said.

The domain name on Friday redirected to a blank page with a circular arrow logo and the mention "Coming soon!".

"OpenLeaks is a technology project that is aiming to be a service provider for third parties that want to be able to accept material from anonymous sources," Daniel Domscheit-Berg, WikiLeaks' former spokesman in Germany added in a Swedish public television (SVT) documentary obtained by AFP.
