Re: Online News Association Blasts Selig's Baseball Restrictions
The problem is that the law seems to be on Bud's side I think. I'm pretty sure digital fair-use is restricted fairly heavily by the DMCA. "All rights reserved" I suppose. All they (mlb) have to do is start suing a la the MPAA and RIAA.
Honestly, it sounds to me like the mlb folks are prepping to take the bulk of their (advanced media) content to a subscriber only service. I've not read, or heard that anywhere, so I don't know for sure, but that sure is what I would anticipate based on this.
