Trouble in the Amazon
It seems that Amazon is making animal activists a little disgusted with the fact that they are involved with the selling of illegal 'sports' magazines, and the Humane Society has stepped in to file a civil lawsuit. Amazon believes that they should not act as a censor, and that the magazines are legal to sell, even though they run advertisements for blades that attach to birds legs with the sole purpose of inflicting fatal injuries.
A lawyer representing the publisher of one of the magazines says that "The bottom line is as long as its legal someplace, you're not advertising an illegal activity." A search on Amazon.com for "cockfighting" returned results not only for raising cockfighting birds, but for raising and training fighting dogs.
