Update on sports credentialing

A few weeks ago, we mentioned that the NCAA’s Southeastern Conference had issued its credentials for the 2012-13 school year that will govern the media’s access to and use of information from SEC sporting events (though we all know the main focus is on coverage of the vaunted football programs). Though we noted some questionable provisions, we are unaware of any major conflicts between the conference/schools/teams and media entities.

The same appears to be true with regard to the Big Ten, which also issued credentials at the beginning of the season. Standing alone, the one-page credentials aren’t terrible. There are a few problematic provisions (for instance, the credentials allow use of no more than 2 minutes of video, prohibit the posting of any video to Internet websites, and prohibit any secondary use of just about any content). But most of the document is rather open ended, leaving room for significant access and coverage; this, however, could be walked back by a reference to the general “Big Ten Media Credential Criteria and Policies,” a document that has not been widely distributed or otherwise made available.
