SEC Unveils Latest Revisions To Controversial New Media Policy

|SEC Has Billed Latest Media Policy
Revision As The Final Product
MEDIA MATTERS: In Birmingham, Jon Solomon writes the revised policy, which marks the "third time this month" the SEC has issued a new media policy, "appears to address a bulk of the media's concerns." Additional revisions include allowing TV stations to "use video of SEC schools for preseason and postseason specials without paying a licensing fee," and permitting a media pool agreement "so TV stations can share video if they miss a game." However, the SEC "retained its exclusive rights for game action video on the Internet," and Cherwa said that "some restrictions, especially those concerning video, remain too severe" (BIRMINGHAM NEWS, 8/28).
