We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
As my father the lawyer told me in 1956, to none of the accounts of descriptions of this game may be recorded or rebroadcast without the express written consent of major league baseball, it doesn't cost them anything to say that.
I recall it as "Any rebroadcast, retransmission or other use of the pictures, descriptions and accounts of this game without the expressed written consent of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball and the is prohibited". Not that I paid that much attention...
I believe the concept of "Fair Use" allows for quotes that convey the general idea of a piece without using too much of it. A sight I spend a fair amount of time on, As Maine GOes, has this policy in place, and put it in writing after the local Portland papaer threatened suit:
