Walker reports on his Business of Sports blog:
In a victory for the fantasy sports business and its fans, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a case involving a Missouri company and Major League Baseball.
The case involved C.B.C. Distribution and Marketing Inc., a Missouri company that tried to get a license from Major League Baseball Advanced Media to use players' names in C.B.C.'s fantasy baseball games.
The company sued, saying it did not need a license.
A federal court and the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis ruled in favor of the company, saying the company was protected by free speech.
