MEDIA BOYCOTT: REUTERS reported a "number of news agencies have decided against covering" the IPL Twenty20 competition in India and the UAE due to the "exclusion of some photo agencies from covering matches." Reuters, the AFP and the AP will send "no reporters or photographers to the tournament, which begins on Wednesday, as a protest against the IPL's limit on editorial freedom." The photo agencies, including Getty Images and Action Images, "supply publishers of editorial newspapers and websites around the world with images from sporting events in numerous countries without problems, but have been excluded from covering the seventh edition of the IPL following a disagreement regarding the commercialisation of images" (REUTERS, 4/16).
