Electronic Arts has joined a growing number of businesses and individuals who oppose the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, in the US. DOMA is a law that legally defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
"Electronic Arts has joined with dozens of leading US employers in signing an amicus brief that opposes DOMA and urges the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to find portions of the Act unconstitutional," the publisher wrote on its official website.
"DOMA presents a number of problems for businesses like EA, as it creates regulatory, tax, and discrimination complications for employers, and that’s why we’re standing against it," it added.
"The underlying lawsuit impacts all employers no matter how big or small, and no matter the industry, and we encourage other business to join these efforts."
Say what you will about them, this sort of thing is progressive and on-point, in our eyes, and we applaud EA for not only opposing the archaic and discriminating law, but for actively urging others to get involved too.
