I was basing my statement on news articles which cite the takedown provision as the reason for the removal. One such is foxnews: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,49699,00.html. I know that depending on the media for accurate info can be dangerous, but when taken with a pound of salt, it may be useful.

No offence intended to you Dean, but:
Google (who are a search engine, not an ISP) are being accused of *copyright*
violation just because they list some other site (not scientology.com) first
on a list of things found after a search for "scientology"?
There must be more to it, or surely Google would tell them to go stick their
heads in a lavatory and pull the flush.
