You say: "Whatever the rights and wrongs of the long standing legal dispute between SRF and Ananda it is about copyright issues not religious freedom. There is no general right to freedom which allows people to ignore the laws of the land, except in exceptional circumstances."

But, after twelve years and tens of millions of dollars spent by SRF suing Ananda, the courts have not found Ananda guilty of ONE SINGLE copyright violation.

These lawsuits have absolutely nothing to do with copyrights. They have everything to do with religious rights.

It appears that you haven't done your homework. Spend some time reading the website:

You'll see that this is not about copyrights, and never was.
