This Telecast Is Copyrighted By The NFL For The Private Use Of Our Audience

In case you were still wondering why the NFL cracks down on 'Super Bowl' Parties in Las Vegas, here's a clue:

This telecast is copyrighted by the NFL for the private use of our audience. Any other use of this telecast or of any pictures, descriptions, or accounts of the game without the NFL's consent, is prohibited.

Keywords: "private use."

Charging admission to watch television turns the private broadcast user license into a public commercial usage. Perhaps the NFL should 'get with the program' and host it's own supremely killer OFFICIAL Las Vegas Super Bowl Party in partnership with one (or more) of the casinos. Charge admission, take a cut of the booze/chicken wing sales, invite Joe Theiseman and Lawrence Taylor re-enact the leg snap, .have Mean Joe Greene guzzle cokes, stage a redo of Scott Norwood's muffed field goal attempt and let Hollywood Henderson slam dunk a football through the uprights.

Seriously NFL, get on the stick!

tell me about it. Ron and Fez on XM/Sirius wanted to do a super bowl show live on sunday and just hang around and BS about the game, and they can't. oh yeah, did i mention that XM/Sirius also have the rights to broadcast NFL games? God forbid some people tune in to a different channel to hear the broadcast. can someone explain this to me?

same goes for the huge problem that all the TV networks and sports franchises have with posting clips on youtube. you're basically getting free advertising. it's been proven for years that youtube makes almost no money, god forbid someone checks out a 2 minute clip and then decides to watch the show/sport more frequently.
