BREAKING: Miss Usa Organization Fires Back at NOM

Let the copyright complaints continue! After blogger Perez Hilton got YouTube to yank the National Organization for Marriage‘s second ad (starring Carrie Prejean) off the site for copyright infringement, the Miss USA Organization is joining the fray with a cease and desist letter addressed to NOM for use of its broadcast in the ad.

Officially, MSO isn’t taking sides in the battle of marriage equality, but c’mon — they wouldn’t have ordered up billable hours from their attorneys if they didn’t want to shut NOM down. Um, we hope.

Next up, HRC exec director Joe Solmonese should start demanding royalties. Whatever. Doesn’t anyone understand Fair Use provisions under copyright law?
