Why do all of your web pages have the word “Soon” printed at the bottom?
The first edition of The Watchtower magazine, July 1879, made the following two comments on pages 5 and 8 regarding how “soon” the end of this system will come and the marriage of Christ’s Bride will take place:
“Keep your eye fixed on the prize. Soon–very soon–you may wear the crown.”
“‘The Chaste Virgin” Church, which expects soon to go in to the marriage and become Christ’s Bride.”
Some 140 years later the Jehovah’s Witnesses are still waiting to “rejoice over the marriage of the Lamb!” of which will take place soon–very soon after the war of Armageddon, according to the ‘new light’ published in The Watchtower magazine, February 15, 2014.

Do you unlawfully publish copyright material from Jehovah’s Witnesses or the Watch Tower Society?
The structure of the internet allows JW Leaks to lawfully provide links to third-party web sites and pages that contain copyright material. The providing of a link to another website that contains copyright material that can be downloaded is not a breach of copyright laws. Click on the below link for an example:
<<< JW.ORG >>>
Remember: Persons clicking on any links to third-party web sites, including JW.ORG, which may or may not contain downloadable files or documents, should make their own inquiries whether permission has been granted to host any such files or documents. The publishing of such link addresses are: 1. merely incidental to the activities of JW Leaks; and 2. provided to assist persons who are lawfully seeking the location of such files or documents.
Has the Watch Tower Society or Jehovah’s Witnesses ever commenced legal action against JW Leaks?
Yes. All the time. Since early 2014 attorneys for the Watch Tower Society and Jehovah’s Witnesses have filed numerous ‘alleged’ copyright infringements against JW Leaks, on the basis of links we have published on our website. However such claims are baseless under law.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble…” The U.S. government (and states, under the Fourteenth Amendment) must meet a high level of scrutiny before restricting speech. It is for this reason the server for JW Leaks is located in California and our IP Address is located in New York.
A link, or hyperlink, refers to and describes the location of another internet resource. The act of linking to other web sites may be likened to protected “assembly” or association with those sites.
