An Iowa-based publishing firm is being sued after one of its parenting videos was spliced into an X-rated film. A New Jersey woman shot the video in 2010 to demonstrate breastfeeding techniques, using her then-month-old daughter. Meredith Corporation, headquartered in Des Moines, was planning to use the video on Parents TV.
It ended up on YouTube and from there, a third party put it into pornography. The woman says she’d Googled both her own and her daughter’s names and found the porn.
Company officials say they’ve taken all possible legal steps to get the porn taken offline. The suit demands Meredith stop using the video entirely. The woman admits she signed the company’s waiver but didn’t read it first, as she was dealing with her daughter.
