Does the Playboy Legal Department have a sense of humor?
Remember, this is a company that is "protecting and enhancing the American principles of personal freedom and social justice" through its Playboy Foundation. A Foundation that "focuses on fostering social change by contributing to organizations committed to protecting civil liberties, combating censorship and promoting education and research on human sexuality and reproductive health."
Ponder if they are combating censorship and enhancing the American principles of personal freedom and social justice as you read the email they sent this site.
