The OTO has won its copyright suit against Tony Naylor in England. The terms do not allow Naylor to appeal.
We are still waiting for more detailed information, but the above has been confirmed by an international officer of the OTO.
This case has been one of the more disputatious issues on the computer networks involving the OTO in many years. It has seen the suspension of a longtime IX° for unauthorized settlement talks with Naylor, predictions by P. R Koenig that the OTO would lose and become bankrupt, and enormous amounts of invective directed against the OTO -- all for attempting to preserve its copyrights, which were assigned to it in Crowley's Last Will and Testament. This often misunderstood and misquoted document assigned the rights to John Symonds only as executor, not as owner, and instructed him in no uncertain terms to assign them to the OTO.
The resolution should also settle, at least for reasonable people, the issue of the legitimacy of the "Caliphate" OTO, which was revived by Grady McMurtry, who had been specifically named by Crowley as a potential successor.
