Judge rules in favor of IHSA's pay-to-broadcast policy
Streaming live video is not an inherent right for media outlets. That has always been the policy of the Illinois High School Association. Only now, the IHSA is asserting its legal right to charge news organization for the right to broadcast high school games.
According to Sangamon County 7th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Patrick W. Kelley on Nov. 13, the IHSA is simply upholding the by-laws it has already in the books.
Recently, a news outlet associated with the Illinois Press Association was told that it would not be allowed to live stream a game without paying a fee. Following that, the IPA challenged the ruling.
