Hey, Data Isn't Copyrightable After All!
A sudden outbreak of common sense by the Supreme Court, which refused to review the MLBAM vs. CBC decision. Technically, the issue is still open and given what MLBAM has at stake (not to mention the player's union), I expect they'll just find a different forum to test their nonsense theories about "right of publicity" WRT sports statistics. But the matter should be good and dead as a practical legal case. Via BTF.
