Alert: "Pay" to Shoot at Sports Events

Sports leagues that issue press passes are now starting to impose rigorous rules on journalists, including photographers, who cover their events. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that some leagues are even claiming copyright or asserting an unlimited license on the photos. The only good news is that some journalists are standing up for their rights and the organizations are backing down.

Thanks to Ed Muholland at for submitting this alert.
