Submission + - Scientology Legal Machine starts on Wikileaks! ( 3

Freedom writes: "

Wikileaks is reporting that The Religious Technology Center ("RTC"), "the owner of the confidential Advanced Technology of the Scientology religion and the holder of exclusive rights under the copyrights applicable to the Advanced Technology materials." has sent it's first legal threat to Wikileaks, demanding that they remove the material on the grounds of Copyright held in the United States.

This is the response all critics were expecting of the Church of Scientology, who's constant attack and litigation strategy still does not change in the era of the Streisand Effect.

The RTC requests that Wikileaks

preserve any and all documents pertaining to this
matter and this customer, including, but not limited to, logs, data
entry sheets, applications — electronic or otherwise, registrations
forms, billings statements or invoices, computer print-outs, disks,
hard drives, etc.

Comcast Targets Unlicensed Anime Torrenters 352

SailorSpork writes "According to a thread on the forums of AnimeSuki, a popular anime bittorent index site, Comcast has begun sending DCMA letters to customers downloading unlicensed fan-subtitled anime shows via bittorrent. By 'unlicensed', they mean that no english language company has the rights to it. The letters are claiming that the copyright holder or an authorized agent are making the infringement claims, though usually these requests are also sent to the site itself rather that individual downloaders. My question is have they really been in contact with Japanese anime companies, or is this another scare tactic by Comcast to try and reduce the bandwidth use of their heavier customers now that their previous tactics have come under legal fire?"
