Electronic Arts comes out against Defense of Marriage Act
Game publisher joins coalition urging an appeals court to find unconstitutional the 1996 federal law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Electronic Arts has joined with dozens of leading US employers in signing an amicus brief that opposes the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and urges the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to find portions of the Act unconstitutional.
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. 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.
EA has been an advocate for same-sex relationships, featuring same-sex couples/relationships in their video games and contributing to It Gets Better project, but it is great to see they are doing much more.

Note: Thanks to cooljoe224 for letting me now about this.
+1 for you EA, but -10000 from you for over-charging me for almost everything. Bioware is okay though, free multiplayer DLCs. :D
