Rangers Sue NHL

In what may be a landmark case the New York Rangers are suing the NHL, at stake; who controls team web sites and marketing.

Unlike the other 29 NHL teams, the Rangers have resisted handing over the keys to their Web properties, and on Friday that dispute went to court when the Rangers filed suit against the league alleging that the league had violated state and federal anti-trust laws by creating “30 cookie-cutter club Web sites” that link to nhl.com, as well as seizing control of certain sales, marketing and advertising operations. Before the suit was filed, the Rangers allege that the league was about to begin fining the team $100,000 per day for resisting the change.
