Looks like Major League Baseball is joining the "our current business plan uber alles" space that's already crowded by the clue-free minions of the RIAA and MPAA - they are calling Slingbox bad when it's used to watch a baseball game:
"...if a league can't protect the rights they (sell), that doesn't bode well for future contracts when they want to resell the rights at higher margins," says George Kliavkoff, who was vp business development at MLBAM before becoming chief digital officer at NBC.
At least he's upfront about what this is all about: preservation of current high margins. However - is he under some delusion that the sports watching public is going to start traveling extensively, and then - already jet-lagged - stay up to watch baseball games? This is a trivially small audience we're talking about here. Do they think people are going to invite the masses to their hotel rooms in order to watch out of region games?
