Cover up your face MLB…you should be ashamed of yourself…
Check out an interesting post over at the Sports Law Blog on: Can Player Statistics Be “Owned”?
Apparently the MLB believes that since it has won lawsuit after lawsuit in the past to retain its anti-trust exemption, it can do whatever the hell it wants…charging companies to use player stats. The current case deals with Fantasy Baseball sites using player stats. While I am 99.9% sure that the MLB will not win this case, if the MLB were to win, Sports Agents would have to cough up quite a lot of money to build stats sheets on their clients and recruits. Quite a thought.
