ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a battle between Major League Baseball (MLB) and its fantasy baseball players regarding the use of statistics in fantasy games. MLB sold to fantasy baseball providers 18 licenses that gave them the right to use the statistics in 2005. MLB raised the minimum license fees to $2 million from $25,000 in 2006. The legality of the right of publicity that attaches to player statistics is being questioned.
