A quick search on google on the word "Scientomogy" will yield dozens of new sites per day, including international news sites reporting on the recent threats from Scientology lawyers. Here's a couple;
September 25, 2005 The Church of Scientology has threatened legal action in order to take over ownership of the domain name of a web site which links to the odd behaviour of one of the world's most famous scientologists, Tom Cruise.
ScienTOMogy.info has apparently received a fax and at least 6 emails in the span of 2 days from Scientology lawyer Ava Paquette of Moxon & Kobrin threatening a lawsuit of up to $100,000 if the domain name ownership is not transferred. This type of letter is often called a cease and desist letter.
The owners of scienTOMogy.info have posted the complaints and their replies, saying that the site simply expresses opinion, does not make any claims, and clearly states that it has no connection to the Church of Scientology. "The site was put up as a single source to view all the recent hype Tom has made about the church - it does nothing but show Tom, so we are at a loss as to why the church is acting so rashly."
The Church of Scientology has taken a very dim view of a recently launched website by threatening legal action - even though the site simply links to the odd behaviour of the world's most famous scientologist Tom Cruise. http://www.scienTOMogy.info has received 6 emails in 2 days from Scientology lawyers threating law suits in excess of $100,000 if not pulled down. The owners of scientomogy.info are shocked as the site simply expresses opinion and does not make any claims and clearly states it is not linked to the church. "The site was put up as a single source to view all the recent hype Tom has made about the church - it does nothing but show Tom so we are at a loss as to why the church is acting so rashly" Full details can be found on the website.
