Its not well know that JZ Knight /RSE succeeded in taking down many other YouTube videos claiming copyright infringements.
These videos clearly evidenced JZK Ramtha's religious bigotry, violent hate speech and alleged illegal activities at RSE.
They were accurate, unedited and legal to upload under NZ and US 'Fair Use Doctrine' copyright laws, also under Citizen Journalism
uploaded in the public interest.
Unfortunately I do not have millions of dollars to fight vicious copyright and breach of contract lawsuits from a wealthy cult leader.
Defending this lawsuit has already cost me over $43.000 in legal fees, already paid to my lawyers via the NZ Ministry of Justice.
NZ legal aid is not free. At the end of the day... I was effectively thrown under the bus by NZ Legal Aid and forced to sign the plaintiffs settlement agreement that stipulated I must agree to destroy all the RSE videos uploaded and contact and instruct all those I provided copies to also must destroy them.
This RSE settlement effectively wasted fourteen months of painstaking defense preparations for my trial at the NZ High Court in Auckland.
No wonder JZ Knight wanted to settle this lawsuit out of court.
The foundation of these lawsuits is to inflict as much financial stress and psychological attrition as possible on RSE whistleblowers where big money and bullying wins.. no matter even if these lawsuits reaches the courtroom.
The ripple effect also spreads more fear into the RSE followers to help silence those who would dare speak out.
When I complained of the injustice of this enforced settlement... a top legal aid official told me point blank..
Regarding the music used as a backdrop to those RSE live stream videos...Quote “I shouldn’t have used the plaintiff’s intellectual property”.
I doubt very much copyright permissions and licenses were obtained by RSE.
It may well be the music industry and artist may have a case for copyright infringement against RSE.
For the record....
Here's a list of my videos RSE succeeded in taking down.
