Just winding him up Shim, don't think anyone really cares as long as it isn't all the time

Surely you don't mean this?

slips in Bert's opinion
becomes a cretin


That's not a poem. More just a statement of fact

Time for an update.....

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-17218968

Football authorities in England and Scotland have had a court claim over football fixtures' copyright rejected.

European judges said compiling match fixture lists needed "significant" work, but did not entail the creativity required for copyright protection.

Yahoo, bookmaker Stan James and sports information firm Enetpulse had been accused of breaching EU copyright laws.

One copyright expert said the European ruling seemed to leave the UK court with little room for manoeuvre now.

"The ECJ has left pretty much no scope for the English court to do anything except say, 'There is no copyright in the fixture list'," said Mark Daniels, an expert in copyright, patents, and trademarks at law firm Browne Jacobson.

And he said that if that were the case, then in future, anyone would be able to use the football fixtures lists, as long as they did not try to imply that they were representing the football leagues.

They will contest this in the english courts, but looks like they will lose, hopefully.
