This article describes the legal action taken towards Mark Marek, the owner of the website bestgore.com that hosted a video of Luka Magnotta murdering Montreal student Lin Jun. The defense argued that Marek posted the video to determine its veracity, not to celebrate what happened in the video. Marek argues that the content found on Best Gore reflects real life, and if it is found to be obscene, that is because real life is obscene.
