A quick Google search found Zakowicz’ unofficial site among more than 600 Sabres-related sites and blogs. Those include the team site, Sabres.com, and unofficial ones such as Sabresreport.com, Sabreslegends.com and NewBlueandGold.com.
All boast Sabres facts and updates. Some go one step further by offering highlight clips of TV broadcasts originating from “Hockey Night in Canada,” the MSG Network or NBC.
In legal terms, blogging or running a Sabres-related site is perfectly legal - a First Amendment right. But when unofficial sites use official logos, game footage and images - as many do, including Zakowicz’ - copyright questions arise.
“It’s difficult to police, but we are doing the best we can,” said Michael Gilbert, Sabres’ director of public relations.
