Why We Oppose #SOPA

Posted by admin on January 18, 2012 is blacking out our logo today to make you aware of a law that will soon be before Congress that could dramatically affect innovation and freedom on the internet. SOPA and PIPA will soon be before Congress and these laws will dramatically alter the current balance of power between copyright holders and the rights of users and website creators.

Sports Reference believes that intellectual property should be protected (our livelihoods depend on it), but these proposed laws go way, way, way too far in trying to stop piracy. A sane, reasoned approach to piracy is what is needed, and these laws proposed by the Movie and Recording Industry would reduce innovation on the internet. They want to return to the 1980's. Do you want sports statistics information to return to the 1980's?

How could SOPA and PIPA hurt Sports Reference LLC?

SOPA and PIPA are a threat to Sports Reference in many ways. For example, in its current form, SOPA would require Sports Reference to actively monitor every site we link to, to ensure it doesn't host infringing content. Even a link to an infringing site could put us in jeopardy of being forced offline.

Links to more information and steps you can take to oppose these laws from Google and Wikipedia.

Sports Reference Mobile Sites: Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Hockey

Posted by admin on December 24, 2011

Our four mobile sites can help you out whenever you are away from home and looking up stats at the parents' house or when you're out with friends or just too lazy to reach the computer.

Almost all of the stats available on the full sites are available through the mobile site, but in a format optimized for your smartphone or tablet. And you can easily switch back to the full site if you prefer. You can even add them to your phone's home screen just like an app (instructions are on the site's home pages).
