Scientology issues 4,000 takedown notices for videos critical of ‘church’

Well now. Guess those ‘Anonymous‘ kids must have hit a nerve. From Ars Technica:
‘A huge trove of critical videos of Scientology was targeted for takedown late last week by a group called American Rights Counsel. The group sent more than 4,000 DMCA takedown notices to YouTube and claimed that every video infringed on its copyrights, according to the EFF.
Those who take on the notoriously litigious “church” of Scientology–including groups like “Anonymous”–know what they’re up against and are willing to take action to keep their messages up. It appears that most of the pulled content has been reinstated already after the various uploaders filed DMCA counter-notices asserting that the videos in question did not infringe copyright.’

  1. Silencing critics is nothing new to the co$.However ,this time , their opponent is way too diverse and fluid so the game continues.Gerard Ryan and his cronies in Abbey St are now unable to recruit new victims into their dangerous cult due to the available info on their nature,about time too.

  2. How is it that John Travolta’s Boeing 707 was allowed to land at Haiti’s over stretched runway with $cientology ‘healers’.
    When this happening…..
    “Aid groups have been desperate to fly their own planes into the over-stressed airport. U.N. humanitarian spokeswoman Elisabeth Byrs said Tuesday that at least 800 planes with relief items are on a waiting list for the airport, which can handle only about 130 flights a day due to a lack of space to park planes as they unload.
    The aid group Doctors Without Borders has complained that the flight scheduling priorities of U.S. military controllers running the airport delayed the arrival of field hospitals, resulting in some deaths.”
