2011/2012 Football League Fixtures

By Bescot Banter @BescotBanter
As I'm sure you're all aware, the 2011/2012 Football League fixtures were released today, but due to the Football League copyright it is illegal to reproduce their fixtures in part or in full without the appropriate license which costs £266 plus VAT for the editorial use of Walsall's fixtures alone.
On Wednesday we sought to clarify the situation with the Football League and were advised of the said copyright laws so have taken the decision NOT to publish the fixtures, we hope to be able to purchase a license in the future and avoid the situation altogether.
As a huge Walsall supporter I am devastated not to be able to share their fixtures with fellow fans but we see this decision as a long term one, over 250 fan sites were closed down last year due to the illegal publishing of fixtures, we're planning to be around for a while yet so would rather play it safe for the time being.
