“When you have a company and the founder is responsible for kick-starting the sexual revolution and then you pluck out that aspect of the company’s DNA by removing the nudity, it makes a lot of people including me sit and say, ‘What the hell is the company doing?’ ” Cooper said...Because his family still holds a stake in the company, Cooper said he can’t be pushed out completely and continues to talk to the board and to his father about the business. He also suggested that he wouldn’t take it lying down. “But I’m currently participating in little to no capacity due to difference in vision,” he said. [NYP]
