Thor Pulls Mermaid Parade Video for Tweaking

Thor Equities has pulled that Mermaid Parade video from YouTube after complaints about its content and a request from Coney Island USA that it be modified. The developer, apparently, didn't get permission to use the name or logo of the Mermaid Parade, and the vid contains a Thor employee saying that "the spirit of Thor matches that of Coney Island." Coney Island USA's Dick Zigun, who founded the Mermaid Parade writes on the Coney Island Message Board that "Thor removed the video on my request and is re-editing the video on my request. I thank them for listening and responding." There's a follow up story on the video and its removal for re-editing in today's Metro.

Kudos to Dicl Zigun for protecting his organization's reputation! But "I thank them for listening and responding."? Yeah, they are completely "listening" and "responding" when a legal claim is made against them. Outside of this one trivial event, Thor Equities has listened and responded to nobody and is simply destroying Coney Island.
