EA joins group opposing Defense of Marriage Act
Battlefield publisher joins Human Rights Campaign's new Fortune 500 Business Coalition for DOMA Repeal.
Electronic Arts is stepping up its efforts to oppose the Defense of Marriage Act. The Human Rights Campaign has announced a new Business Coalition for DOMA Repeal, a group made up of 13 Fortune 500 companies, including Electronic Arts.
Other companies include eBay, Armani Exchange, and Marriott International Inc., among others. No other game companies are part of the group.
All companies in the Business Coalition for DOMA Repeal support the Respect for Marriage Act, which repeals DOMA and recognizes all legal marriages for federal purposes.
The Defense of Marriage Act, which was enacted by the federal government in 1996, legally defines marriage as between one man and one woman. The Obama administration since found the act's third section (which contains the definition) unconstitutional, and has refused to act upon it.
Last summer, EA, Microsoft, and Zynga (among other non-gaming companies) stated their opposition for DOMA by signing a joint amicus brief.
