Excerpt from one post: Fantasy Baseball 2, Real Baseball Zero:
“By Michael Kahn
The Eighth Circuit handed down its much awaited fantasy baseball decision in CBC Distribution & Marketing, Inc. v. Major League Baseball Advanced Media, L.P., the appeal of the district court’s summary judgment in favor of CBC. CBC had brought a declaratory judgment case in St. Louis to establish its right to use — without license or compensation — the names and statistical information of real major league baseball players in its fantasy baseball products. The players had counterclaimed, maintaining that CBC’s fantasy baseball products violated their rights of publicity.”
