Scott Pilutik

I am an attorney and consultant living and working in Manhattan, focusing primarily on church/state constitutional law. I'm a recognized expert on the Church of Scientology organization. I also have strong interests in intellectual property law where it intersects with emerging media, and free speech.

I support the efforts of the Americans United for Separation of Church and State, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the National Lawyers Guild, the ACLU, Creative Commons, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. I am a member of the New York County Lawyers Association and the New York State Bar Association. I also enjoy (watching) hockey and (doing) photograhy.

Online I can be found on Facebook, Twitter. My resume can be viewed here. I can be reached by phone at 212.645.6241 or by e-mail at pilutik[at]

Yet Another E-meter, This Time for Real

The two e-meters in the previous post were indeed sold on eBay. However, the sale of the first e-meter ended after one day–five days early. The sale of the second e-meter is curious too, as no picture was included in the listing. This may have had the effect of robbing Scientology of its only thin basis for removal, that being that the listed e-meter was a counterfeit, and the listing thus a trademark infringement. Without the picture, it is impossible to ascertain the authenticity and thus impossible to claim trademark infringement. It may also be noteworthy that the second e-meter was listed by a British user.

Onto new e-meters! Well, one new e-meter. eBay listing here, and screenshot here, in case it disappears. The listing is due to expire in 4 days and can be “bought now” for $1400. The seller is from the US, and the e-meter is relatively new (a Mark Super VII Quantum).
