Mediaworks unsuccessfully tries to shutdown Newsgrub

Mediaworks this week has unsuccessfully tried shutting down New Zealand’s most factual news site – Newsgrub.

On Thursday afternoon Newsgrub received emails from our Icelandic web host saying that they had received fictitious complaints from Mediaworks about Newsgrub running a phishing scam. It appears that Mediaworks had hired an American based company to try send threatening letters to Newsgrubs host and domain name provider.

Unfortunately for Mediaworks, Newsgrub is hosted and operated on Icelandic Servers. Iceland’s constitution guarantees freedom of speech and of the press. Iceland has full Internet freedom, academic freedom, freedom of assembly and association, and freedom of religion.

Good luck.
