Date: Tue, 14 Feb 1995 14:07:02 -0800 (PST) From: Helena Kobrin Subject: Dennis Erlich To: raoul@MIT.EDU Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: TEXT/PLAIN; charset=US-ASCII Dear Mr. Garcia: I represent Religious Technology Center ("RTC"), the owner of the confidential Advanced Technology of the religion of Scientology, and the holder of the exclusive rights under the copyrights applicable to the Advanced Technology materials. Among these copyrighted and confidential materials are the Advanced Technology materials of a level known as "OT III." The copyright for OT III is registered with the United States Copyright Office. We have been informed that you have loaded 11 pages of recreated versions of OT III materials into the Internet without the authorization of our client, who, of course, would not have given such authorization had it been requested. Your action violates our client's legal rights in that it is the unauthorized making of an electronic copy of the copyrighted materials and the unauthorized disclosure of trade secrets materials. These actions constitute violations of the United States Copyright laws entitling out client to damages, an injunction, and impounding of materials and equipment used in perpetrating the infringing acts. It is essential that you take immediate and effective action to remove the unauthorized copy from the Internet, and that you refrain from any repetition of this or similar acts in the future. I will expect an immediate response from you with a statement of your willingness to comply with these demands. If you do not comply immediately, I will have no other recourse but to initiate legal action to compel compliance. Sincerely, Helena K. Kobrin
