NOM Deeply Offended By Bookseller’s “It Getteth Better” Marketing Video

NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, is deeply offended by bookseller Simon & Schuster’s viral “It Getteth Better” cartoon video that pokes fun at religious anti-gay bigots. A quick Google search for “It Getteth Better” finds “about 132,000 results,” proving NOM is in the vast minority.

In a blog post today, the anonymous “NOM Staff” write, “We guess Simon & Schuster thinks this is smart marketing — mocking Christian pastors who preach the bible’s teaching on sexuality (warning: many folks will find this deeply offensive).”

Of course, in what now seems to be official company policy — to steal intellectual property such as copyrighted photographs, music, videoentire articles and even streaming video — NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, has uploaded the Simon & Schuster video to its own YouTube account, rather than allow the creator of the work to receive any credit for it. NOM merely writes: “SOURCE: SimonBooks,” which is not acceptable practice. They easily could have embedded the original video.

(YouTube clearly states: “Important: You must own the copyright of any content you upload,” and offers this important copyright warning.)

Perhaps Brian Brown will respond to the theft of the video by lying?

I suppose, when you’re doing the Lord’s work, civil laws are not applicable to you…

I so want to see Youtube and the original creator sue NOM for all it's money. Make them poor like the rest of us, and they will be powerless. Also want to see the judge impose an injunction against NOM from using Youtube, or from posting on the internet again. Have a Nice Day NOM! What you sown you have reaped three fold.

I guess you never saw Mr. Po-Po on Dragon Ball Z.

I had to share that out to everyone on facebook. I know darn good and well that the religious freaks hate anything relating to the truth, but they will get over it someday, if not, maybe someday when they stop supporting the corporate fascists we'll be able to provide padded cells for them to enjoy in safety and comfort.
