Anonymous Versus Scientology: Cyber Criminals or Vigilante Justice? - 2008-02-06
Neither Tom Cruise nor the Church of Scientology is a stranger to media attention, though lately that attention has taken a very different tone. You"ve no doubt read or seen something about Tom Cruise's controversial video, which seems to have cropped up across the media spectrum. You"ve also likely seen the Church of Scientology's (Scientology) cease and desist letter demanding its removal, and the subsequent online declaration of war by a group calling itself "Anonymous," which promises to "systematically dismantle" the Church. The resulting legal and public relations battle has given bloggers and lawyers alike no shortage of entertainment.
