Major League Baseball Tries To Takeover Fan Site
from the for-the-fans dept
Major League Baseball is going through all sorts of problems right now with the looming player strike and various arguments about "contraction" and bankrupt teams. One discussion that's been getting louder the past few weeks is that both sides (MLB and the players) seem to have forgotten another party who should have a say in all of this: the fans. So, why is it that MLB (who clearly have better things to concentrate on) are wasting their time trying to take away a fan site from the fan who runs it? That seems pretty unclear. Basically, it sounds like this cease and desist letter from MLB means that no one is allowed to create a fan site for any Major League Baseball team, because, by definition, it will violate some copyright.
