    It seems you can't nude nymphs are not allowed in Alabama, not even on wine bottle labels.

    How sobering! :cool:

    First, I think this is exactly the kind of marketing/legislative action/marketing reaction that is healthy.

    Per the article, Alabama acts on existing legislation:
    Sounds like their law is a bit vague, and because of that can be quite broadly applied by the whims of whomever is on the panel, council, or whatever designating application. We may want to think it backward, intolerant etc., but it is exactly how things should be: decided on a state-to-state basis.

    Marketing reaction:
    One states' ban may be a company's boon.

    I find it interesting to note the differences of acceptability in different usages and departments. They cite the usage of Powers' The Greek Slave, a nude statue. And that "Alabama's Capitol has historic paintings on display, including two that show several topless female Indians."

    Beauty, and art, is in the eye of the beholder. Guess they just don't find it artistic on an alcoholic beverage bottle.

    This is like the old "Banned in Boston" deal: it guaranteed whatever was banned in Boston would be wildly popular everywhere else.
