DMCA’s and Osho

DMCA’s are the American laws that govern copyright on the Internet. Introduced a while ago by Bill Clinton. We dont really even know what this English guy, Robert Lester is coming from,
but he describes in the link below how he managed to get the videos about Osho he made,  back on to utube,  and against the wishes of Osho International, who had DMCA’d them…..     Interesting stuff some would say.

    If true it would be strange, indeed, this display of muscle, with an unknown blogger as if for them (Resort) were not enough the legal troubles … Also find the time to deploy such medals (iconoclast). We’ll see if the guy thanks to Osho will find someone who comments on his website … now that I’m thinking about at least a couple of iconoclasts come to my mind who could migrate over there … no, I’m wrong, the true iconoclast prefers to poison different wells than those full of crap.

      Yes, very strange indeed, Veet Francesco,

      If it´s due to a bugged´Apple (mine) , I don´t know…when I saw then appearing the name of this kind of ´celebrity with the added ´666 in the ´youtube performance´, which was very strange as well – and underneath read: ´happy seasonal greetings´from the pentagon (big letters).

      Weird indeed !

      So I guess, you are right, presuming “the true iconoclast prefers to poison different wells than those full of crap.”(VF)

      So – if that is simply an invitation for another of the numerous crappy stuff circulating in the huge , and quite often really mad algorhthm brain of the inter-net, or even – comparable to a mafia´s stance: ” an invitation, that nobody can deny”, one does not know, or does one ?

      Anyway I don´t feel ´invited´to anything sane, SN folks, seeing then, what – besides this special youtube – was appearing on the screen.

      A suggestion, to take care – for everybody.

        Perfectly correct Madhu!
        You say:
        “If it´s due to a bugged Apple (mine) , I don´t know…when I saw then appearing the name of this kind of ´celebrity with the added ´666 in the ´youtube performance´, which was very strange as well – and underneath read: ´happy seasonal greetings´from the pentagon (big letters).”

        Perfectly correct!
        Again your wisdom shines out with the clarity of a middle English poem transcribed by a baboon with learning difficulties using broken autotranslate app in a secure unit during intermittent power-cut!

        It is utterly neccesary to express clearly that followers of the wisdom of mighty Bhorat are not foaming at the mouth semi-psychotic insane newagers talking and writing incomprehensible paranoid gibberish in often mad algorhythmic brains!

        You and Veet Francesco are taking perfect responsibility for the task!
        Those who read your posts will certainly come to know that cultmembers are perfectly sane!

        Madhu, a suggestion:
        Why not download for free 360 Total Security to protect your computer?

            Actually in New York right now, Madhu.

            • madhu dagmar frantzen says:

              Wherever you are, or me is, Lokesh – or others are :

              A heart in a HEART has no address – or has it?

              • satyadeva says:

                “A heart in a HEART”

                What might this mean, please, Madhu?

                • madhu dagmar frantzen says:

                  Why not wait a bit, Satyadeva ? This response was not one for the logic and dissection area here…

                  Why not wait a bit, please?

                • satyadeva says:

                  Ok, Madhu, I’ll see if you’ve left the answer at the Christmas tree by tomorrow midnight.

                  (After that, be prepared to be torn apart – utterly, of course – by the crack team of psycho-spiritual trouble-shooters I have employed especially for the, er, ‘Festive Period’, all expert logicians, of course, trained to detect and investigate all manner of sentimentalism and general humbug so prevalent at this time of year).

    Basically, this Robert Lester guy has hit on a good way to get a lot more hits on his blog than he ever would otherwise for the fairly standard anti-new-age spiel he`s offering.

    Personally, Osho freaks everywhere should welcome it. In some ways the hecklers say that you have something.

    Take Deepak Chopra, for example – he`s got Richard Dawkins and Brian Cox slamming him solidly on Youtube and elsewhere – that`s success!

    Osho`s only got this Lester guy, who by the look and sound of it is just an average Brummie with poor spelling abilities.

    Oh well, it`s a start!

    • Ashok says:

      Good to see a well-balanced, sensible, non-paranoid take on offer, Mr Frank! Ta! I am glad that you are on the block!

      “In some ways the hecklers say that you have something.”

      Very true in the context you have focused on – as elsewhere of course! Some of Shanty’s and my own posts spring readily to mind!

      Merry Effin’ ‘n’ all that!

    Children in the neighbourhood enjoy picking fruits from the garden of the widow. It becomes even fun when the widow freaks out to see kids shaking the branches.

    Similar is the situation between functionaries of OFI and the others who like to post Osho pieces at youtube.

    The two types of dancers on the Titanic.

    Ah ha ha…you finally learned a new word in a different language from your herd, big red ass monkeys.

    If you want, I will also give you some lessons on how to pronounce it, although our desire to share should overcome the lexical difficulties…wait….something like “love knows no distance”…no… something more familiar to you: “the worst deaf is the one who does not want to hear.”

    I am sure that one day we’ll overcome even the negligible differences about the vision of what is happening on our boat, if it is healthier that one could be ‘emotionally disturbed’ by the fact that it could sink or more concerned that these ‘alarmed’ voices (everyone with their own accent, yes it is a big boat) could disturb absorbed monkeys in their favourite game: ‘Launching the Shit!’.

    Imho, we can celebrate the last dance on this our boat, with joy and totality, only if we have done everything possible in order not to let it be the last dance…ok, perhaps all this stuff is a bit complicated to explain to you:

    If it is true that the function makes the organ and if that one that you use primarily is much larger than what is necessary to look beyond your monkey ego, the heart.

    Yes, Monkey, even on the Titanic ‘you can not run away from yourself’, the main fear.

    Btw, this comment in Sicily, where live people with little patience with the monkeys, could be expressed with one word: Suca.

    Hello (cheeaho),

    Happy Christmas, Dear Swamis and Mas.

      There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black:
      1. He called everyone brother.

      2. He liked Gospel.

      3. He didn’t get a fair trial.

      But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish:
      1. He went into His Father’s business.

      2. He lived at home until he was 33.

      3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin and his Mother was sure He was God.

      But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian:
      1. He never cut His hair.

      2. He walked around barefoot all the time.

      3. He started a new religion.

      But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish:
      1. He never got married.

      2. He was always telling stories.

      3. He loved green pastures.

      But the most compelling evidence of all – 3 proofs that Jesus was a woman:
      1. She fed a crowd at a moment’s notice when there was virtually no food.

      2. She kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn’t get it.

      3. And even when She was dead, She had to get up because there was still work to do.

    Some people treat SN like a doormat…Not thinking that each molecule of energy causes a ripple effect. Like a Tsunami….

    Just to let you all know that here at the Fukushima Xmas Tree and Garden Centre all of our trees already glow in the dark and save you pounds in unnecessary lighting bills.

    And to our readers…

    Be alight unto yourself.

    And Xmas wouldn’t be the same without a musical…

    Here’s a religious one…about coming into union with the divine…
