Well it looks like for the time being that is what is happening with Wikleaks.
Mirror site and support site are going up at an unpredented rate. When WL first went down they took the mirrors down too. This time there are a lot more mirrors and support sites.. hundreds and still growing.
Just to give you some idea..
There is an existing thread on how to put up a mirror
Is this people power in action. Will the WL sites sites grow from 100s to 1000s. Lets weight and see....

What better way to build hype.
If you believe or not, this is one hell of a way to generate buzz for wikileaks.

I'd list my own mirrors but I don't think that's allowed..
...You see, this is the first time anything like WikiLeaks has been attempted. Yes, there have been leaks prior to this, but never before have hyperdistribution and cryptoanarchism come to the service of the whistleblower. This is a new thing, and as well thought-out as WikiLeaks might be, it isn’t perfect. How could it be? It’s untried, and untested. Or was. Now that contact with the enemy has been made - the state with all its powers - it has become clear where WikiLeaks has been found wanting.
[Later in the same article]
...In exactly the same way - note for note -the failures of WikiLeaks provide the blueprint for the systems which will follow it, and which will permanently leave the state and its actors neutered. Assange must know this - a teenage hacker would understand the lesson of Napster. Assange knows that someone had to get out in front and fail, before others could come along and succeed. We’re learning now, and to learn means to try and fail and try again.
