Free the Fixtures!!


Recommended Posts

Once again the FA ripping off the supporters

The Football Association are searching through football club fan sites and threatening legal action against those sites displaying league fixtures without having previously paid a prohibitive license fee to the FA for the privilege of doing posting their ?property?.

Many smaller fan sites are run by private individuals with the interest of their club at heart, and not any personal private gain, unlike the FA or individual clubs. As such, such a demand for the privilege of posting such information that can be found anywhere on the worldwide web, or in the paper media, restricts the right of the individual to attempt to present a ?professional?-looking web site.

Therefore, we, the undersigned, protest at the money-grabbing antics by the FA, and urge them to consider allowing bona fide fan sites to publish league fixtures without cost to the webmaster.

I can't even believe they can even do that?

Are we allowed to actually discuss them? Will it get to a stage where we can't even talk openly on premiership games, or certain names are copyrighted? icon_rolleyes.gif
