Scientologists Recognize Inevitability Of Losing Links Case
from the whoops dept
Just a day before the Dutch Supreme Court was supposed to weigh in on whether Scientologists could get someone on copyright infringement just for linking to content they didn’t want online, it appears someone explained to them how unlikely this case was to succeed — so they’re trying to drop it completely. However, the person accused of putting up the links is pushing for the case to continue. It would be good to have yet another confirmation that linking to content is not the same as hosting it yourself. In the meantime, this is yet another example of the Streisand Effect, where simply trying to make something online disappear has only succeeded in getting it that much more attention.
