Greedy MLB Doesn't Get Another Day in Court

You may remember the story of MLB suing an online fantasy baseball company saying it did not have the right to use player's names for its product without a license. MLB would not offer the small company a license because they wanted to control the small group of companies that would use the players names in order to get more profit. MLB lost the lawsuit and then appealed to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals where they lost again. Two losses were not enough for MLB so they appealed the case to the Supreme Court. The U.S. Supreme Court announced today they would not take on the case and let the lower court ruling stand.
