I’m gonna totally blow this out of proportion with that headline… because I want to. Actually only because a Twitter conversation I was having with Marc Cuban about Tweets being copyrighted became fodder for a post on With Leather.
RedsArmy: @mcuban Unless you’re set to “private”, anyone can go to your twitter page and see what you’ve said. IMO, that’s a big difference.
Cuban: @RedsArmy Since when did any tweet become public ? Its for followers/subscribers
The conversation was originally between FanHouse and Cuban… and I hopped into the conversation. Cuban is pissed his tweet blasting the refs cost him $25 grand… and now he wants to claim that ESPN using his own words in a story is somehow a copyright violation. I think his argument is ridiculous, but I would classify our conversation as civil. I sure as hell got a kick out of it.
