Statement by sports association spokesperson:

Our sports association issues contracts to television networks for the exclusive right to broadcast our sporting events. For this right, the networks pay the association substantial fees, which help finance our leagues. We also provide free media passes to our events for journalists so that they can effectively report on sports news, including final scores. Now, however, some news organizations are posting video clips, audio clips, digital photographs, and live score updates from our events on their websites. Conditions must be placed on these practices, which go beyond mere sports news reporting; they harm the value of our broad-casting contracts and violate our rights as the owners of the sports leagues. News organizations that wish to post such information on their websites should therefore sign contracts with the sports association that stipulate what postings will be allowed and how much they will cost. As we have in the past, we will deny media passes to journalists from news organizations that do not comply without requirements.


For each of the following statements, select Both accept if, based on the information provided, it can be inferred that both the sports association and the news organizations would likely accept that the statement is true. If not, select Otherwise.
