TMZ reports that Miss Universe Organization has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the National Organization for Marriage.
Seems the Miss Universe organizers are not too thrilled with NOM using footage from the Miss USA 2009 pageant in an anti-gay marriage commercial.
The commercial is playing on NOM's website and uses Prejean's controversial response to the gay marriage question to back up the group's message.
This doesn't mean the MUO is taking sides. Although we kinda think it might be.
But NOM cannot legally use copyrighted pageant material to promote its social agenda.
