Google runs into Copyright Dispute...
Does the Church of Scientology have a leg to stand on in suiing Google for linking to church documents? Be sure to check out Operation Clambake
, the site in question who claims all documentation on their site is ", is allowable under the "fair use" provisions of internationally recognized copyright law"
. If it is truly a question of copyright, shouldn't the Scientologists be suing the site
in question and not Google????
When Google removed the link, it outraged the technology community - can Google win in this case??? Check out what Don Marti
has to say about the issue...

Scientology Strikes Again
Last Saturday a comment was posted on Slashdot by an anonymous reader that contained text that was copyrighted by the Church of Scientology. They have since followed the DMCA and demanded that Slashdot remove the comment. After consulting with their lawyers, that's exactly what Slashdot did, but posted the above page with oodles of links to anti-Scientology resources. Will Scientology stop at nothing to silence its opponents?
