Scientology's Cruise Control - 2008-02-07
The nine-minute clip features a wide-eyed Cruise trumpeting his Scientology beliefs with what many have described as messianic zeal. Soon after the video surfaced on the Web, the Church of Scientology International demanded it be removed -- claiming the posting of the stolen video violated its copyright. Most of the sites have complied. One -- the New York-based Gawker -- has not, defiantly claiming a right to post the video under the copyright doctrine of fair use.
