French Host OVH to Keep Hosting WikiLeaks, For Now

(Ping! Zine) – French Web hosting company OVH will continue to host the controversial website WikiLeaks for now. The French government’s fight to stop the hosting provider from hosting WikiLeaks recently failed when two courts announced they need more time to examine the issue.

Industry Minister Eric Besson recently ordered an examination to ban WikiLeaks from being hosted in France.

OVH sought a ruling by two French courts about the legality of hosting the site, in which the judges said they could not make a decision on the case immediately.

As of now, OVH will continue to host WikiLeaks until a ruling is determined.
