Copyright takes LDS garment listing off eBay

The on-again, off-again Internet auction of sacred Mormon temple garments is off again for the time being, but not as a result of the furor their sale stirred among members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Mormon Church

Given that the theology and practice of the Mormon Church violates essential Christian doctrines, Mormonism does not represent historical, Biblical Christianity, is not a Christian denomination, and is not in any way part of the Christian church.

EBay spokesman Hani Durzy said Friday that the Web site removed a listing for the undergarments, which are only to be worn by authorized LDS members, because it contained text for which an LDS Web site holds copyrights.

“We do not have a policy against listing Mormon garments on eBay as long as the seller owns them and properly lists them,” Durzy emphasized.

The seller, Andrew Moody of Dallas, is welcome to restore his listing if he removes the offending text, Durzy said. Moody outraged Mormons by offering the sacred underwear for sale.
