...a magistrate judge in St Louis ruled today that CBC Distribution & Marketing, a fantasy sports operator, did not violate the player’s “Rights of Publicity” and furthermore MLBAM, Major League Baseball’s internet arm, should not interfere in CBC’s Fantasy Games in the future.

In general terms, this means companies do not need a players' license to own, run or operate a fantasy sports game in the state of Missouri. While the judgement is only binding in Missouri, the decision carries weight throughout the country.

MLBAM charged as much as $2 million dollars for a fantasy license in 2006.

For fantasy players this means fears of escalating league fees or a shutdown of their favorite fantasy league manager sites will not happen.
