    The org has been exposed for abusing DMCA laws to hunt down and punish anonymous faders/JW's.

    If you talk to a JW, tell them how wisely the "faithful slave is looking after the masters belongings." (Matt. 24:45)

    They spend ten$ of thou$ands of donations on lawyers to get revenge on those who publicly expose them.

    Maybe they've now learned a lesson!

    During the hearing, Watch Tower’s counsel made the outrageous statement that Watch Tower’s litigation strategies were confined by a lack of “significant funds,” and that its approach to the litigation was guided by “significant economic motivations." (bottom of page 18 of the transcript). Because Watch Tower’s 990T forms are publicly available as required by law, it is a matter of public knowledge that Watch Tower has more than a billion dollars in assets. Watch Tower is fortunate that it never made this representation about limited resources in a signed document.

    An interesting read, the source appears to be a Consumer Advocate blog. The wording is a bit slanted in favor of McFree, but seems factual.

    "Litigation guided by significant economic motivations "

    As always, follow the money. Im not sure how free material makes money.

    Even some honest PIMIs can laugh at themselves.

    A century of convincing themselves that past court victories were due to God's backing, and a vindictive streak that's been there just as long couldn't help but inevitably lead to what the Catholics call "hubris".

    Well, we wish Kevin McFree well !

    So glad it worked out.

    ”Kevin” mate, your you tube videos were so insightful, we knew just where you were coming from.

    It took an extraordinary amount of effort to produce just one episode but please know that it was worth it. You done good, mate!

    How much money have they wasted on this frivolous type of thing? As they are fond of saying "make wise use of dedicated funds".

    The dub rank and file has no clue the extent of the waste of their money.

    To Kevin McFree:

    Congrats on the court case, and I have to say that watching your Lego videos was absolutely one of the best things about being an ex-JW!

    I hope you will post more videos at some point in the future, and I wish you all the best going forward.

    I hope he starts making more Dubtown. That was a very funny bunch of videos he has.

    I hope Kevin McFree makes a Dubtown episode about this case - none of it is copyrighted to the Watchtower.
