Hypocrisy of corporate anti-SOPA protests

Dear Reader,

I'm somewhat amused by the hypocracy of the likes of Vimeo and Wikipedia making so much fuss about the Internet censorship bill, but yet they are doing exactly the same thing: stopping their users from exercising their freedom of expression. Just look at the case of Rebel News. Vimeo has cancelled our Premium account, without prior warning, supposely for inciting violence, which goes to prove they haven't even bothered to watch our videos, and Hasbara-agent infested Wikipedia keeps deleting all links and entries referring to us.

When Vimeo deleted our account, 2 1/2 weeks ago, I protested with the following arguments:

1. The objected videos were professionally made documentaries based on provable historic facts.
2. The videos didn't incite to hate, nor did they depict excessive violence.
3. Deleting my videos and even deleting my premium account WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING nor opportunity to defend myself is not only disproportionate, but an utter breach of fairness and natural justice.
4. History cannot be sealed by laws or corporate terms&conditions. Any attempt to do so is tentamount to tyranny.
5. Freedom of expression are far more important goods than sparing the sensitivities of a tiny minority, regardless how rich and powerful this minority is, especially if that group greatly benefits - both financially and politically - from maintaining beliefs that are contradicted by exercising the inalienable right of freedom of expression.

So far, we haven't heard back from Vimeo, apart from an automated email confirming the receipt plus a request for sending reminders, in case they haven't come back to me within a couple of days.

Please support us in our struggle to get Vimeo - who claim to be at the forefront of the corporate anti-SOPA protests - to stop censoring Rebel News and restore our premium account and deleted videos. Address your courteous and civil email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , quoting Vimeo case number 86309. Our deleted Vimeo account number is user6442053.

Many thanks,

Your Rebel of Oz
