WWE removes video Democrats upload against Linda McMahon

Sep 17, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck

Last week, a team of from the WWE legal department started flagging down
videos on YouTube which had to be removed, mostly the Attitude Era edgier
videos which were being used against Linda McMahon’s Senate campaign by
the Democrats. “In response to news that the WWE is scrubbing the internet
of sexually explicit material from Linda McMahon¹s tenure as CEO, the
Connecticut Democratic Party is launching a new campaign to highlight the
truth about McMahon’s past,” read a press release from the Democratic
Party of Connecticut. Instead of uploading to YouTube, the Democrats
uploaded the video on another video sharing website, Vimeo, saying that
they are re-releasing a video which highlights the type of programming
Linda McMahon market to children. “The video includes footage of wrestlers
engaging in lewd sex acts, including one scene in which a wrestler has sex
with a corpse,” the press release adds. Included in the press release was
the link to the Vimeo video, which funny enough, the WWE legal team also
got their hands on, managing to take it off the Internet once again. The
video was titled “PG TV?” and the link now goes to a notice saying that
the video was removed due to a third-party notification by World Wrestling
Entertainment, Inc., claiming that that the footage used is infringing
their copyright.
