This morning we reported that Sony had "unreservedly" apologized for the whole Resistance: Fall of Man kerfuffle for the second time. Well, the Church of England has rejected the apology -- again. This morning in our post we glanced over the "sacred digital guidelines" the Church was proposing because we had no idea what that was all about, but The Times has the details. The "Sacred Digital Guidelines" the Church is proposing entail:
Respect our sacred spaces as places of prayer, worship, peace, learning and heritage.
Do not assume that sacred space interiors are copyright free.
Get permission from the faith leaders who are responsible for the building interiors you want to clone.
Support the work of those engaged in resisting the culture of gun crime and those involved in promoting the work of conflict resolution.
The Church of England's lawyers are still "in conversation" with Sony and continue to demand Resistance be pulled from store shelves. Oh, and just in case you're wondering, "cathedral clergy are also demanding a response from Sony to their request for a donation to their work with young people and the victims of gun crime." The Very Rev Rogers Govender asks the not only Sony, but all game publishers, agree to the new "sacred digital guidelines."
