Catching up, Wired News ran my story on Major League Baseball's move to collect license fees for online gamecasts like those featured on ESPN, Yahoo!, and Sportsline. The legal issues around this are really cloudy, and it will be interesting to see if someone stands up to MLB and forces this to go in front of a judge. In some ways, it almost feels like it needs to be litigated, to get some clarity on what constitutes a broadcast.
