Banned Book Part 2

Although Pat Brown and I differ in many points on the interpretation of the files, I very much appreciate her effort to draw attention to an unsolved case of a disappeared child and her not-so-helpful parents. Therefore it is unacceptable that after Goncalo Amaral's book - Die Wahrheit über die Lüge - has been banned by Amazon.de now her Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann has befallen the same fate. On amazon.de amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

Please think twice if this company with the quasi monopol to the distribution of books and certainly electronic books is still worth your support.




Thanks to HiDeHo and the Levy Page Show.

This is the letter from Amazon to Pat Brown:

7/27/2011

Dear Pat,

We have received a notice of defamation from Carter-Ruck Solicitors that says the content of Profile of the Disappearance of Madeleine McCann (UPDATED) B0055WYVCQ, contains defamatory statements regarding their clients, Gerry and Kat McCann.

Because we have no method of determining whether the content supplied to us is defamatory, we have removed the title from sale and will not reinstate it unless we receive confirmation from both parties that this matter has been resolved.

Carter-Ruck can be reached at:
6 St Andrew Street
London EC4A 3AE

T 020 7353 5005

Best regards,

Robert F.

Her book can now be bought off Barnes & Noble

    An outrageous assault on free speech. If Pat Brown is a genuine seeker after truth and not just someone trying to take a free ride on the case she will sue the ass of Amazon in the American courts, who always back free speech in such cases.
