Oops, let me rephrase what I said earlier about LiveLeak

According to what's reported here on Hot Air, they have really ended up disappointing by yanking Fitna off their databases.

I almost misssed it, but, as I see, LiveLeak is a British-owned company? Initially, I had some rather hard thoughts on them, but here's what their announcement tells:
Following threats to our staff of a very serious nature, and some ill informed reports from certain corners of the British media that could directly lead to the harm of some of our staff, Liveleak.com has been left with no other choice but to remove Fitna from our servers.
This is a sad day for freedom of speech on the net but we have to place the safety and well being of our staff above all else. We would like to thank the thousands of people, from all backgrounds and religions, who gave us their support. They realised LiveLeak.com is a vehicle for many opinions and not just for the support of one. Perhaps there is still hope that this situation may produce a discussion that could benefit and educate all of us as to how we can accept one anothers culture.
We stood for what we believe in, the ability to be heard, but in the end the price was too high.
In that case, I'll take back what I thought at first about the company, because if there's anyone to really blame here besides the jihadists themselves, it's the British government and press for their [unsurprising] refusal to defend their citizens and businesses against said jihadists. The video of Fitna, fortunately, is available so far on Google Video, and there are various others who've recorded it already with a torrent program. I guess you could credit LiveLeak for doing its job by helping to get it up on air for starters. Update: now, they're restored their own video to their database.
