Hope this email finds you well.
I spoke to you last year regarding a story on political blogs in Singapore.
This time round, I would like to ask you:
1. Your blog has posted the Singapore Rebel documentary online for download. You said you did not put it up, then how did it get on your site?
2. Have you considered taking it down, given that the film might have violated the Films Act, and your blog might be dragged into it for distributing/showing the film?
I will be grateful if you could respond to my email very soon, by today (May13), as I am writing a feature on the Films Act which will be published tomorrow. I apologise for the rush. Do let me know if you can respond.

And my response was...
with regards to question 1. 'who' posted it.
I am not responsible for uploading the film to the internet, I have merely linked to it from my site. The url is widely available. It is not actually on my site nor on a server that I host. All I have done is hyper-linked to the documentary.
And as I did not upload the film, I am unable to remove the film.
I would be more than willing to answer any further questions regarding this issue.
And here is the offending url...
