random quotes ... to amuse, inspire, enrage:
  With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.

religious use of copyright, again

Thursday, September 15th, 2005 10:16 am

a little interest of mine: religious texts and copyright.

  • Michael Geist covers a Canadian copyright case by the Watch Tower Society (Jehovah’s Witnesses) suing a website for posting religious texts. [link via boingboing]
  • Scientologists do this all the time: Operation Clambake has its own response to copyright issues. A few cites: Religious Technology Center v. Netcom On-Line communication Services, Inc., 923 F.Supp. 1231 (N.D. Cal. 1995); Religious Technology Center v. F.A.C.T.Net, Inc., 901 F.Supp. 1519 (D.Col. 1995).
  • Worldwide Church of God sued Philadelphia Church of God, 227 F.3d 1110 (9th Cir. 2000), for distributing the WCG founders’ earlier, racist works after WCG had disavowed them.

more later …
