EFF on Landmark Education’s DMCA subpoena

Enric Cirne, whose Tech Alley videoblog covers Technology in the San Francisco Bay Area, writes:

On November 8th, 2006 I interviewed EFF lawyer, Kurt Opsahl, on EFF’s defense of the Internet Archive from the Landmark Education DMCA Subpoena. Landmark Education subpoenaed the Internet Archive, Google Video and YouTube to reveal the identity of who uploaded the France TV 3 video on the Landmark Forum. Kurt recommends bloggers, whether using text, audio or video, review the EFF: Legal Guide for Bloggers. Another source of information for online rights is the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse with a database of take down notices. Should you receive a Cease and Desist notice(s) they can be put up there.

In its entry on Landmark Education, Apologetics Index has linked to a copy of the video, titled “Voyage Au Pays Des Nouveaux Gourous” (“Voyage to the Land of the New Gurus”), as posted at a website in Australia.

We were subsequently contacted by an attorney for Landmark Education, requesting that the link be removed since, the letter claims, the documentary includes copyrighted material from the “Landmark Forum Manual.” Here’s why we have not removed the link.
