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.
