The Streisand Effect in Brilliant 3D — Information Is Free
The Streisand effect is a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.
The recent decision to yet again censor Defence Distributed and DEFCAD.org have made this a necessity in terms of the correct application of the 1st Amendment.
According to David French from the National Review:
If there’s a hall of fame for futile, symbolic, and ultimately unconstitutional federal court orders, the temporary restraining order just issued in Seattle blocking Defense Distributed and the Second Amendment Foundation from posting blueprints for 3D-printed guns deserves at least a plaque, if not a full display. The court’s order temporarily overturns a Trump administration legal settlement that reversed an Obama-era policy designed mainly to limit the spread of the relevant files abroad, not here at home.
The information is already in the wild, running free. It is probably right in front of you, if you just look for it.
