The US Supreme Court refused to consider the case of Major League Baseball Advanced Media v. C.B.C., 07-1099

For those who don't know, this is the case where a fantasy website couldn't get a licence by the MLB to use the players names on it's site. The website sued and said that it should be allowed to use them anyway as it is News and Statistics,which courts have seen as the domain of the public, and also claimed free speech.
The MLB players union countersued and said that the website was trying to make money off of the players names, and this required the players permission (hence the licence).
A lower appeals court sided with the website, and said it was free speech. By not hearing the case, the supreme court is essentially saying that the lower court was correct.
Winner = Fantasy Sports Junkies Everywhere.
