(Via Beijing Cream) After learning that masturbation by first class passengers on board Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific was, while not explicitly encouraged, definitely tolerated, NMA decided that: (a) this was news; and (b) this was hilarious; and so, true to form, made the above video.
Cathay Pacific for some reason, didn’t want to be associated with businessmen strangling the bishop at 50,000ft and tried to get the video taken down.
This of course didn’t make Cathay Pacific very happy. Cathay wanted the video taken down. At first, Cathay sent a letter to NMA demanding the video be removed.
When we refused, Cathay complained to YouTube that the video had violated “community standards” and decency. YouTube took no action.
Finally, Cathay turned to law firm Simmons & Simmons for help.
A lawyer for Simmons and Simmons claims our video violates Cathay Pacific’s “copyright” and has successfully petitioned YouTube to remove the video under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
Wow! What a bunch of wankers! Does Simmons & Simmons not understand satire and copyright law?
NMA promptly re-uploaded the video, and Cathay Pacific’s own hellish version of the Streisand effect took effect.
