The court was told the men

even tampered with the police investigation

into hacking at the ANU.

The judge, seeing Assange as just

an inquisitive young man,

fined him a symbolic sum and released him.

However, the trial added further fuel to Assange's feelings

about the importance of unrestricted information.

Together with some friends,

he sets up one of Australia's first internet suppliers

and gives people with politically sensitive viewpoints

a platform from which to publish their opinions.

But when one of his customers

publishes secret Scientology manuals,

this prompts aggressive efforts to censor him.

Helena Kobrin,

one of the lawyers for Scientology in California,

sent many letters trying to attack us.

And they ended up hiring a private investigator

to try and track me down.

Who did manage to get hold of my silent telephone line

and call me up,

just as a sort of threatening manoeuvre.

I ended up tracking down how they did that.

Those efforts to censor the site

strengthen his conviction that something has to be done

against those withholding

important information from the public at large.

The problem was...

..there needed to be more actions

that created positive reform effect.

More actions that were just and corrective to injustice.

Assange sees disclosures as a preventative instrument.

It warns those involved in morally questionable

or criminal acts

that they'll be found out and

will have to face consequences.

I understood the significance of

disclosures for quite some time.

I mean, I registered leaks.Org in 1999.

In 2006, Assange and a group of like-minded people

start building up a special internet service,

wikileaks.Org,

exclusively for people wishing

to blow the whistle on abuse of power.

His fellow conspirators comprised of hackers and mathematicians.
