Apparently, Gina Crosley-Corcoran, known to many as The Feminist Breeder, would. On her own blog, TFB reveals that she has gotten into a little intellectual property tiff with another blogger who is notorious in the birth world. She notes that copyright infringement - in the form of the re-posting of a photo that she originally posted - is "a VERY serious offense."
Yet who is she inexplicably supporting and defending? You guessed it - Brio Birth, the folks who can't seem to stay out of IP trouble. Brio has aggressively courted TFB from its inception, due to her blog following. They even paid for advertising to sponsor her live blog of her homebirth, giving her the coveted distinction of being one of the few who was actually paid in full by Brio for services rendered.
There has been some confused speculation over the past year and a half about TFB's support, lack thereof, or shifting opinion regarding Brio, but make no mistake - her comments on their BirthLIVE cancellation thread were strongly supportive.
Multiple messages from knowledgeable parties about Brio's unethical and criminal activities, including their history of IP theft, have been met with a brush-off from TFB, who prides herself on her savvy and on her ability to stick up for the victim (as long as she decides the victim is worth supporting). I wonder how she would react if Brio reposted one of her pictures - or any of her blog content - as their own? She'd probably be blinded by a "thanks to The AMAZING Feminist Breeder! Warmly, Naomi" or a "we'd love to give credit"...
Because, after all, Brio is no Dr. Amy. They're much less honest about who they are, and much more damaging to the birth world.
