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, video, entire 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…
