Reports are coming out that the SEC is going to try to stop its fans from posting messages, pics, and whatever the hell else you do on those sites during college football games in its stadiums. Good luck on enforcing that.
Maybe this is just the SEC’s way of limiting negative things said about Tim Tebow? What if I promise only to post pro-SEC updates? E.g., “Usain Bolt has speed, but he doesn’t have SEC speed.
Earlier this month, the conference informed its schools of the new policy, which reads: “Ticketed fans can’t “produce or disseminate (or aid in producing or disseminating) any material or information about the Event, including, but not limited to, any account, description, picture, video, audio, reproduction or other information concerning the Event.”
Translated, that means no Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, TwitPic, or any other service that could in any way compete with authorized media coverage of the event. In the case of the SEC, authorized media coverage rights belong to CBS, who has a $3 billion deal with the conference over the next 15 years according to The St Petersburg Times.
