What Part of the 1st Amendment Do These Chuckleheads Not Understand?

From, via NewsAlert (see blogroll at left):

The Illinois Press Association asked a Sangamon County judge on Thursday to dismiss a lawsuit filed earlier this month by the Illinois High School Association that claims it has exclusive rights to sell photographs taken at state high school athletic events...

The Bloomington-based IHSA has had a licensing agreement with Visual Image Photography since 2001. Its lawsuit claims newspapers around the state refused to stop selling photographs from state events to third parties, which is a violation of IHSA policy.

Take a picture, go to jail?
