Re: MLB trying to copyright player's statistics
If they created their own licensed Fantasy Baseball Product, their argument would actually be stronger in support of protecting the data as being under their exclusive domain to license as they so choose. (corollary = video games)
One of the things hurting MLB's current argument the most is exactly the point you elucidated, FlightRick.
Should a start-up video game company be allowed to usurp MLB stadiums, player names, stats, etc. etc. in order to "force" MLB to produce a "superior" video game? Of course not.
