Hicks lose social networking rights

Postby Tavish » Tue Aug 18, 2009 12:30 pm

In another laughable attack on social networking, the SEC is attempting to protect its advertising revenue in a completely non-sensical way.

Earlier this month, the (SEC) informed its schools of the new policy, which reads: “Ticketed fans can’t “produce or disseminate (or aid in producing or disseminating) any material or information about the Event, including, but not limited to, any account, description, picture, video, audio, reproduction or other information concerning the Event.”

Translated, that means no Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, TwitPic, or any other service that could in any way compete with authorized media coverage of the event. In the case of the SEC, authorized media coverage rights belong to CBS, who has a $3 billion deal with the conference over the next 15 years according to The St Petersburg Times.

Good luck with that SEC!

You don't get banned for that, just like you don't get banned for calling Cubs fans sex offenders.

Just another example of the awful double standard here at the Cafe. I'm surprised they let anyone get away with such mean spirited thread titles.

I believe he was referring to Rangers owner Tom Hicks.
He's quite down on his luck lately. !+)
