Recall the news yesterday that the SEC was planning massive restrictions on usage of things like highlights and, according to TECHDIRT, “memories.” These days, it’s part and parcel of any giant new digital media deal, but it’s all so 20th century all the same.
(But how in the world are we supposed to genuflect before Tebow if most of the Internet can’t regularly use his likeness?)
After all, a ban on YouTube highlights? A 72 hour window to use highlights? Restrictions that only salaried media employees can cover SEC events? No twittering from the game, even from fans?! Heh… funny thing about that guys, you’d never guess; the SEC needs some time to tweak those rules just a tad.
