UK football fans listen up

Xtratime received a takedown notice for this thread containing the fixture list for Manchester City in 2007/08. Yes, it's so unbelievable that I'm going to say it again: Xtratime received a takedown notice (that is "you are using our property and we want it removed") for posting the 07/08 fixture list of Man City.

I have checked around a bit, and the company does exist, and the email seems to be legit (mail headers check out etc). The same email has been sent to many other sites, in particular here you'll find interesting information. Notice that they claim license rights to the English and Scottish leagues. Does that mean the FA Cup is exempt? No idea.

Since we have no lawyers, there really isn't very much we can do. The content will be removed and I advise you all to be aware of this situation.

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.

Do we have to stop using words now in case the Oxford Dictionary sues us for using their property?

I am e-mailing the guy to find out more - it did sound very unbelievable when we got the email but well, will see how they explain this.

So this means that we cannot post a fixture list in any thread for EPL matches right.

Well that is beyond a joke if you ask me, but if we're being threatened with legal action, this is our only form of action. amazing whilst also a joke.

bullshit. merely typing out a list of club names and dates does NOT violate any copyright I know of.

don't copy it directly from any site. just re-type the list. That is NOT copyright infringement.

It sucks but unfortunately this is an issue for a lot of sites, you have to have a license to post or display Premiership fixtures

Fixtures can't be under copyright, but you may check if there were used some images or formates. Otheriwise, sorry but lol.

Arsenal-Mania has received loads of these warnings in the past about fixture lists. This license they're talking about costs thousands of pounds to buy so virtually no unofficial football fan-driven site has it. Of course the Arsenal-Mania site owners have never listened and and this seasons were added the moment they were released. p

I received something similar about fixtures a couple of years ago. I did some research and talked to a few people and it turned out to be a scam.

I know there is a licence you need to be able to display the fixtures. I no longer display them but it's like everything all other copyrighted material online most will ignore it.

They are complaining about their IMAGE and their style, they CAN'T have copyright on the fixtures

Its not like they are saying you cannot post the fixtures itself (sounds ridiculous otherwise how would people know and so many other sites and tv stations showing it) as long its in your own way like text or perhaps your own pic or something

??? weird my post got deleted..

They are complaining about their IMAGE and style being used here. They CANNOT simply have copyright on fixtures.

As long its in your own word or even image if you like its fine.
