Jesus: It’s Not All About Free Speech!
It seems that Jesus is “all for free speech but” not when it comes to websites encouraging people to use reason instead of blind faith!
Our web host received this on the 5th of Feb:
Dear Nearly free speech,
I am writing in regards to your website www.jesusallaboutlife.com which was registered on the
30th January 2009.
I have contacted our lawyers and at this early stage they have advised us to request that you shut down this sight immediately due to copyright infringements and defacing our brand, please view our website www.jesusallaboutlife.com.au
We are all for free speech but hope you understand our position.
Once you have closed this sight can you please advise?
Thank you in advance.
Next time Jesus and his representatives want to try and shut us up, maybe they should actually read the Copyright Act 1968?
In particular, I recomend Section 41
Fair dealing for purpose of criticism or review
A fair dealing with a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, or with an adaptation of a literary, dramatic or musical work, does not constitute an infringement of the copyright in the work if it is for the purpose of criticism or review, whether of that work or of another work, and a sufficient acknowledgement of the work is made.
And Section 41 A:
Fair dealing for purpose of parody or satire
A fair dealing with a literary, dramatic, musical or artistic work, or with an adaptation of a literary, dramatic or musical work, does not constitute an infringement of the copyright in the work if it is for the purpose of parody or satire.
Just to be absolutely clear, this image is an adaptation for the purpose of parody or satire:
Have a nice day.
