Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be
considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The
Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes
the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the
questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to
those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

Fortunately this was a temporary, one-day suspension, while the Univ.
brought its own legal types in to look at the claims. This forum
(alt.support.ex-cult) will, in the main, have opinions already on the
validity of a "copyright infringement" claim from Scientologists, but
I think it quite reasonable that the Univ's *initial* reaction was to
suspend the pages, as if it had been a "Warez" site (i.e. offering
copyrighted software), do a preliminary investigation, and put the
pages back on-air within a day.
