Re: FB streaming and copyright issues
Don't know the applicable law, but I do know that this was a large part of the reason college football broadcasts stopped showing halftime. You used to get a 20-30 second shot of each band. Sometimes a whole song. At least they would be used as the background picture and sound for some of the 'halftime analysis'. No more, and when people started to complain this was a stated reason. You will also notice (well, maybe not this year) that anytime the band is shown in the stands it is for the fight song or some cheer thing. Never a 'stand tune.' If it is bleedover sound picked up by field and crowd mics it is okay.
