Tom Voltz asked me to post this:

"Dear Tilman

I trust you will pass the following on to ars:

Effective immediately, I, Tom Voltz, author of and owner of the copyright to the book "Scientology und (k)ein Ende", as originally published by Walter Verlag in 1995, grant permission to anyone (except as noted below) to go and translate the book into any other language than German and publish it on the internet. This does NOT include the German edition, as the book is currently still being sold in that language and I ask the ars community (and other, less ethical netizens) to respect this. The permission is granted in the understanding that publication on the net would be free of charge to any person interested in reading it - in other words it may not be put on database systems which charge its customers money for their use. In addition the server where such publication would be stored on the net may not demand from a person to give his/her name or any other means of identification as a condition of being allowed access to the translated book. I want it to be freely available for use and debate or whatever. That's what it was written for.

This permission is NOT granted to entities who are members "in good standing" with the Church of Scientology or any of its direct or indirect affiliates, associates, in-concert-workers, attorneys or other people hired by them, unless they wish to do the translation in order to do amends for the benefit of those whom they harmed in the course of their "planetary clearing efforts" and/or society at large. When in doubt go and get your ethics clearance from the ARSCC ethics officer. No specific SP level attainment certificate need be presented. The wearing of a tin-foil hat is mandatory during translation.
