Here is what was hand delivered to me, by the DSA, A.C.T. just 2
hours after we started handing out flyers.

We are the solicitors for the Church of Scientology.

We are instructed that you are engaged in distributing documents
which contain unpublished Church Scriptures which are subject to
copyright.  You are acting in breach of the Copyright Act.

We have instructions to commence proceedings in the ACT Supreme
Court for an injunction if you continue this activity.  We would
ask the Court to order that the costs of the application be borne
by you.

NOTE: Mr Muhli, although photographed with a flyer, did not hand
out any, and wasnt there for most of these events.

Now this flyer we used was the Xenu flyer!(With the small chunk
of hubbard's handwriting on it) I read somewhere that it has
already been in court, and it's quite ok to hand this one out,
including in Australia -can someone confirm this for me,  I am
only 2% concerned by this legal threat.

Wow, am I having fun this week, wahoo, lets do it again :-)
"Scientology is evil; its techniques evil; its practice a serious threat to the
  community; medically,
morally and socially." -Report of the Board of Inquiry into Scientology for the
  state of Victoria,
Australia, 1965.
