Understand?
Until 2004, the last time the industry saw increased sales was when the original Napster exploded onto the scene. Napster was the vehicle for millions of pirated songs, but it also helped bring focus from many consumers onto the music market, and more than one study showed at the time that Napster users bought more CDs than non-users.
"Because Napster users are music enthusiasts, it's logical to believe that they are more likely to purchase now and increase their music spending in the future," Jupiter analyst Aram Sinnreich said in a statement in association to a study it released in July of 2000.

Not saying that it would be worth their effort to do so, but given the stance they are taking, it would be well within their rights to do so.
Tell me how that strengthens the fantasy baseball industry. Tell me how that makes any logical sense.
