Party Poopers

February 2, 2008

It’s perfectly within their legal rights, of course, but it’s also a perfect a example of why they’re known as the No Fun League.

I think this reflects more than just an isolated principle of the NFL. This is an example of a wider arrogance among big corporations towards copyright laws. Just look at the music recording industry, which has done everything in it’s power to ensure that consumers pay more for less. Companies and industries know what they can do, and take pointless steps to do it. What do they gain? What revenue can the NFL possibly lose by a group of people watching the big game on a big screen?
