I never thought there was such a thing.
I imagine most of the guys playing this game are like the Mr. Overly Competitive Touch Football Game Player, described in the Bud Light: Real Men of Genius radio commercial.

Kickball is really big here in DC. There are even two leagues and they're (the leagues) competitive enough that WAKA is suing the other league! I never played it but most people I talked to enjoyed it a lot. Some people are competitive and other are just there for friends, girls, beer, etc.

Like I said above, they better be careful or they're going to get sued by WAKA. ;-)

lol, well I don't think that WAKA invented kickball, so I'm not sure what grounds they have to sue. Can MLB sue WAKA for ripping off most of baseball's rules then?

LMAO that's funny. Apparently kickball is a serious business.

Well rules can be copyrighted, so they can't be copied, although they can be similar.

Also, although not the case in this instance, sports can be patented!

"In 1990, Foster was awarded a patent for arena football and the equipment unique to it—the only known instance of a game being patented anywhere in the world. This means that other indoor football leagues must play under significantly different rules; the patent, however, expired on September 30, 2007, opening the door to other indoor football leagues using such rules under Foster's old patent."
