Here is the full text, minus the really cool letterhead of the LucasArts cease and desist order. This is being posted as a public service announcement so that future WWW and FTP sites won't fall to the same fate. BTW, this weekend I was planning to finish the site, I had about 50 megs of audio and a bunch of pictures and text to put up... what a waste...
