NCAA Sets Live Blogging Limits for Games!

lThe NCAA issued new rules this week that will allow credentialed press to blog live NCAA championship sporting events. The rules, however, limit the number of times reporters can post live blogs depending on the sport they cover.

Apparently, this only effects credentialed press. What would happen if I went to a game and blogged live just as a spectator? Would the blog police come and confiscate my hardware?

This raises the larger, and in my opinion copyright, issue as to who owns the data contained within an NCAA game? Those are mere facts and typically are not covered by copyright protection. The NCAA must be making this purely a matter of contract, then . . .
