The Darkspilver Debacle - Episode 23 - Watchtower In Focus LIVE (feat. Leonard J. French) - 2019-04-13
Back in episode 21 we revealed how an increasingly litigious Watchtower is using a bold new strategy of "subpoena warfare" in its efforts to stifle criticism of its teachings and practices. In recent months, dozens of subpoenas have been issued by Watchtower to internet giants like Google, Facebook and Reddit requesting information identifying otherwise anonymous whisteblowers who have posted information the organization considers to be copyrighted. This is in addition to cease and desist letters being sent to known activists, including yours truly, threatening legal action over use of copyrighted content. But with the help of the EFF, or Electronic Frontier Foundation, one ex-JW activist is fighting back. Reddit user Darkspilver has issued a motion to quash Watchtower's attempts to subpoena their information, and Watchtower has responded with a 48-page document defending their attempted violation of Darkspilver's privacy.
