    Thank you jeffro. Your explanation helps!

    Despite the slightly alarmist picture of text above, 'JW leaders' always had 'strict legal control' of their copyright material, as is the case with all copyright owners. Motion picture corporations have long included 'legal threats' of prosecution for breach of their copyright, so the kind of statements in Watchtower's terms of use are not unique. The only unusual thing is the way attention is drawn to the terms of use in a manner not typical of websites.

    (Why do people create lame pictures of text? And if you're going to do so, do a spell check first, and learn what apostrophes are for!)

    Jeffro - as usual, you bring a breath of fresh air to the discussion with your reasonable tone and explanation.

    Much of the websites terms of use are standard, even though the explicit setting out of consequences is fairly detailed. On this note, it is comparable to some employers' websites that specify precisely what employees can and cannot do with and on their company's website.

    I see some reasons. The WTS doesn't want their own people creating own websites for preaching quoting the org.s webpage. The org probably prefere people being liknked to the JW.orgy website.

    And yes there is also that apostate thing......and the mocking...we all remember that sign-language video that went viral some year ago!
