The league is beginning to seriously crack down on their use, and I'm guessing the axe is going to continue to fall after seeing what's happened to SB Nation, Barstool Sports, Deadspin, etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm completely aware of the posting and use by others on Twitter, etc. and other sites, including other Patriots accounts/sites. If you're wondering why you've never seen me post them here on PatsFans.com, it's not because of any lack of ability on my part to do so. It's because I already knew it wasn't allowed having already dealt with a similar issue in the past that the league contacted me about and that's why you don't see logos, gifs, non-licensed photos, videos, etc. After broaching the topic recently again this week with their legal department for clarification, I was specifically told that using them or capturing broadcast video of plays as either video or gifs, despite what people seem to believe, doesn't fall under "fair use". I won't get into specifics or elaborate further, but this is an issue they're obviously now pursuing and I know it won't be long before the dominoes continue to fall in that area and after hearing from a couple of people familiar with what's going on, I'd rather not be one of them - unless, of course, one of you are an excellent lawyer and are willing to take on a billion dollar corporation on my behalf for free because I have a daughter in college and zero $$ to deal with it As a result, please review your avatars, signature files, etc. and transfer them to an image hosting site for the ability to be able to keep them and then remove and delete them from your signatures. And moving forward, don't upload them here as I'd rather not get a FEDEX from New York if I can avoid it.
