Anti-Quran film pulled from LiveLeak

A Dutch lawmaker made a 15 minute film that was critical of Islam religion and the Quran.  While this story is mainly about religion, which I will not get into, this story also has an Internet perspective.  The film was shown on Dutch television and the movie was put up on several sites, which quickly were pulled down.  LiveLeak was one of the sites that kept the video up until the owners had to pull it for their safety.

I would be curious if this will effect LiveLeak’s reputation, although I doubt it.  Network solutions also pulled the site after several complaints led to a take down of the domain, although it’s unclear if Network solutions pulled the domain or refused to host the site.
