Author(s): Lisa M. Bowman
Source: CNET
Buckling under pressure from the Church of Scientology, the Internet Archive has removed a church critic's Web site from its system. The Internet Archive, a site that preserves snapshots of old Web pages and bills itself as "a library of Internet sites and other cultural artifacts in digital form," no longer contains links to archival pages of Xenu.net. Instead, surfers are pointed to a page telling them the site was taken down "per the request of the site owner." However, Xenu.net ...

Events occur more quickly on the Net — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Type: Press
Author(s): David Radin
Source: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Maybe the Internet really does work in "Internet time," a unit that goes much faster than the real world. I never believed that Internet time was a real thing. It was a way for consultants to rationalize how quickly the Internet sucked up investor money. The common wisdom is that things happen more quickly on the Internet. That's why Netscape grew so large so quickly; and why development of Internet software always seemed to go faster than the development of other ...

The Church of Scientology has taken its long-running battle against the distribution of its material on internet sites - especially sites critical of the church - to Google, one of the most popular search sites on the internet. Google catalogues more than two billion pages on the internet, but cyber civil libertarians cried foul when the site removed links to a website called Operation Clambake, due to a legal challenge from the Church of Scientology. The Operation Clambake site portrays the ...

New Economy; A copyright dispute with the Church of Scientology is forcing Google to do some creative linking — New York Times

Author(s): David F. Gallagher
Source: New York Times
GOOGLE, the company behind the popular Web search engine, has been playing a complicated game recently that involves the Church of Scientology and a controversial copyright law. Legal experts say the episode highlights problems with the law that can make companies or individuals liable for linking to sites they do not control. And it has turned Google, whose business is built around a database of two billion Web pages, into a quiet campaigner for the freedom to link. The church sent ...

Google Begins Making DMCA Takedowns Public — Linux Journal

Author(s): Don Marti

Attention DMCA lawyers: Try to remove a web site from Google's index and you'll probably just make it more popular. In an apparent response to criticism of its handling of a threatening letter from a Church of Scientology lawyer, the popular search engine Google has begun to make so-called "takedown" letters public. DMCA-censored pages are now two clicks and a cut-and-paste away from the regular search results. The full text of two new letters to Google, dated April 9 and 10, ...

Google removes anti-Scientology Web links — CBC News
Type: Press
Source: CBC News
The Google search engine has delisted some Web pages that are critical of the Church of Scientology. Google said it had no choice because the church had threatened legal action if the Web sites stayed listed on Google. Free speech advocates said the law the church used to get the pages removed, the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, is too powerful and may infringe on freedom of speech. The delisted Web pages are on Operation Clambake, a Web site that opposes the ...

Paul Wouters, managing director of Xtended Internet, said he believed this was the first time an ISP had suffered such ...

Tory Bezazian was a veteran Scientologist who loved going after church critics. Until she met the darkest detractor of all. Last year, Church of Scientology operatives received an alarming tip: During the upcoming 2000 MTV Movie Awards scheduled for June 8, a short South Park film parodying Battlefield Earth would feature the character Cartman wiping his ass with a copy of L. Ron Hubbard's sacred text, Dianetics. The tip was erroneous. Cartman would actually be wiping his ass with a Scientology ...
