Re: MLB trying to copyright player's statistics
I think much of it stems from the multi-million dollar business of fantasy baseball. No other sport--football is probably the closest--has nearly the amount of potential dollars on the table than fantasy baseball.
Shouldn't MLB be allowed to control the usage of this information? It is being used for profit by certain entities. Without MLB, this entire industry would not exist. Shouldn't the players and MLB be allowed to profit from and control these hundreds of millions of dollars produced solely from their efforts?
