Watchtower leaders sue member for copyright infringement of 'God's Word'.


TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - Legal proceedings before the Ontario Superior Court were initiated on September 8, 2005 by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania (hereinafter WTBTS), the legal corporation used by Jehovah’s Witnesses for their publishing operations, against Peter Mosier, owner and operator of the website located at:

Jehovah’s Witnesses, who publicly trumpet their past legal battles to protect freedom of the press, expression, and religion,file suit for monetary damages against a web site that does nothing more than quote interesting excerpts from their own religious literature, which they have printed and freely distributed to the public for decades.


The law suit seeks monetary punitive damages and a court ordered silencing of the aforementioned website, which does nothing more than provide a well researched and topically organized collection of interesting and esoteric quotations from more than one hundred years of religious literature published by Jehovah’s Witnesses.


Peter Mosier, registered owner of the aforementioned domain and designer of the web site, is a former member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses religion. After years sincerely believing the claim of the Witnesses’ leadership to be ‘God’s sole channel of communication to mankind,’ Mr. Mosier was heartbroken to find that he had not been taught the truth about the religion’s history and the development of their current beliefs.


In a spirit of scholarship, research, and fairness he created the web site to accurately document the Witnesses’ own words.
