Default A Serious Problem with MonRoi and the US Championship

Now you can shut up on this non issue!! MonRoi has responded in an entirely

Sorry, but this is not entirely satisfactory. The USCF Executive board
does NOT agree that Monroi must be given credit for making available
the games from the US Championship. Other online services such as
chessbase.com and ICC have every legal right to copy the games and to
broadcast them on their own websites.

The fact that two newspapers have thus far refused to publish games
because they were taken from a Monroi website is a clear warning that
this should not be allowed.

Unless MonRoi removes copyright notices stating or implying that
Monroi holds the copyright to the games, the USCF Executive Board will
not allow the use of Monroi equipment at the US Championship.
