Jeg har tidligere skrevet om LiveLeak her på bloggen og om deres hurtighed.
Denne gang har hurtigheden tilsyneladende haft en pris. LiveLeak-holdet har følt sig nødsaget til at fjerne den stærkt Islam-kritiske film “Fitna”.
Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, Liveleak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.
This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realised LiveLeak.com is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one.
Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture.
We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.
Jeg skal ikke kunne vurdere noget (jeg har ikke set filmen, og jeg agter heller ikke at gøre det), men fremtiden vil vise, om den kan holdes tilbage fra internettets mange distributionskanaler.
