Obiter Dictum

Woman's virtue is man's greatest invention --- Cornelia Otis Skinner

Tuesday, January 3


Update: For all those interested in this, here is another take on it, posted by one of the commenters on Sports Law Blog.

I never thought of statistics as "intellectual property." But, are they? If so, do fantasy leagues have to obtain a license to use them? Should they?

Its a silly thought at first blush, but the more I think about it, the more I wonder if someone hasn't spent a lot of time putting together statistics. Shouldn't that property be protected? On the other hand, it just feels like big (sports) business being unnecessarily oppressive.

Don't know how I feel about this one yet. Don't even really know if they have an actual argument. What do ya'll think?
