    Wikileaks takes on the LDS AND Scientology!

    Watchdog Web Site Goes After the Mormon and Scientology Churches

    <snip>

    But Assange said if they do move forward, Wikileaks would welcome a lawsuit.

    "The lawsuits validate the documents we released and bring attention to other people who are revealing incriminating information about these or other organizations," he said.

    "It also brings further attention to our organization as a whole, and it's possible to create a situation where the lawsuit itself brings out the material in public and is a revealer of truth."

    In September 2007, the site published evidence of massive corruption in the Kenyan government prior to the country's national elections, a move the group said may have helped shape the election's outcome. In November 2007, it released day-to-day operating instructions for the detention facilities in Guantanamo Bay. And in February 2008, it revealed that U.S. forces in Iraq were permitted to pursue enemies into Syria and Iran, prompting a warning from Tehran to Washington.

    ===================

    This should be interesting!

    The Scientologists are just vicious in going after groups that oppose them. Just look at what they did to the Cult Awareness Network.

    Yeah, but the guys at Wikileaks seem up to the task!

    I'd be willing to donate a dollar or two to see the Scientologists get their a$$e$ kicked.

    They're such bullies.

    This group is openly and admittedly breaking copyright laws. Tell me again why we get to pick and choose when copyrights should be respected?

    FTA: If it were to come to a legal battle in the U.S. with either the Scientologists or the Mormons, Columbia University intellectual-law professor Jane Ginsburg said, Wikileaks likely would claim strong protections under U.S. fair-use laws, which give leeway for whistle-blowing groups that use even copyrighted materials to back up their claims of corruption or abuse.

    But they are not claiming any corruption or abuse. They are simply saying they got hold of church documents that are copyrighted and they are publishing for everyone to see. Also, using copyrighted materials to back up claims of corruption and abuse does not mean you instantly have free reign to ignore copyrights. It means that the copyrighted information can support a case.

    Proving corruption and abuse is the whole point of the whistleblower website.

    Why? Why do you even CARE what they do?

    If a mafia guy gets wacked, I figure you play you pay. Maybe Scientology is the same thing. Personally, anyone who gets involved in a cult pretty much is screwed.
