CST Legal Papers 10 Copyright Transfer Record
13 Apr 2000 08:58:42 -0000


1. This is the Copyright Office record from the Library of Congress that records the transaction wherein Norman F. Starkey transferred copyright ownership for ALL the works of L. Ron Hubbard to the CORPORATION known as "Church of Spiritual Technology" (CST).

2. CST is NOT a church; it is a CORPORATION. Ref. U.S. Claims Court No. 581-88T, Judge Bruggink:

"CST is not a church...CST represents that it is a religious corporation organized to accomplish the activities of a church. Despite its name, CST is not itself a church... ."

3. Note that the date "EXECUTED" is recorded as 29 November 1993. But the actual Assignment document that effected the transfer of the copyrights (See "CST Legal Papers 11 Assignment [to CST]") is notarized on 30 November 1993--a day LATER than this Copyright Office record indicates. Here is evidence of yet another fraud.

4. This Copyright Office record merely gives one actual title that was transferred in the transaction, but refers to the other 7,730 titles that were transferred. For a complete list of all 7,730 titles, it is recommended that you get the database available on the internet that contains ALL the titles transferred in this transaction. The database--Library of Congress data on CofS Copyright transfers and registrations--is available in several formats, at http://fzint.org/downloads/index.htm . (Scroll down page to find it.)

5. Late note--April 2000. The copyright records contained in the database referred to above were reportedly obtained through a TelNet connection to the Library of Congress. TelNetting in, as of last year, was available through the Library of Congress's web pages. There is now a notice on their web page that users can no longer TelNet into the Library of Congress because of "security reasons." The only way to search for records now is through a web-based search engine--which can contain all manner of invisible "filters" to deny access.

Here is the U.S. Copyright Office record of that transaction:
