Free speech, provocation, and Internet video
This afternoon, video sharing site LiveLeak pulled the controversial anti-Quran film "Fitna" off its site in response to citing threats against the company and its employees.
There has been much debate across the web about this film, LiveLeak, and free speech. Google Video still has the film available online here (warning: it is very graphic).
Not too long ago, there was this verdict about "hate speech", and the threats to LiveLeak have resurfaced issues around provocation in the context of free speech. We as human beings owe it to each other to continue to have dialog about these matters and freedom as a whole. It will be interesting to see how Google responds to possible threats against them.
