From Adam Proteau at The Hockey News,
I’ve disagreed with the U.S. Supreme Court on a number of its recent decisions – one in particular – but couldn’t have agreed with it more on its choice to side with fantasy baseball leagues in their battle against Major League Baseball and its Players’ Association.
The court’s verdict – basically stipulating that baseball and those who play it professionally are not owed compensation for the use of their names and statistics – is not only fantastic news for baseball fans, but also a nice little shot across the bow of all sports leagues and player unions who wish to soak their customers bone-dry by any means necessary.
