They Don’t Call it the “No Fun League” for Nothin’ July 2, 2007Posted by David Card in Media.
Fellas, don’t you understand how important it is for media to promote your product?
- In a move designed to protect the Internet operations of its 32 teams, the pro football league has told news organizations that it will no longer permit them to carry unlimited online video clips of players, coaches or other officials, including video that the news organizations gather themselves on a team’s premises. News organizations can post no more than 45 seconds per day of video shot at a team’s facilities, including news conferences, interviews and practice-field reports.
Ummm, the media lobby is pretty powerful. Stuff like this is practically begging for Congressional or FCC or FTC attention. Don’t muck up a good thing.
