Revised SEC Ticket Policy in place. Twitter fans, please share the great times you have at our stadiums with your friends.

SEC Has Announced Revised Fan Policy Not too long after revising its policy for credentialed media members, that tweet from the SEC announces that the conference has updated its policy for ticket holding fans too. Here is an interview with SEC Associate Commissioner of Media Relations Charles Bloom, who talks at length about the changing of the policy without giving up too many specifics. There's a lot of talk about the SEC's "intent," of which little apparently made it into the first release of the policy. It also sounds like there were an awful lot of chefs in the kitchen when they were cooking it up, it was thrown together rather hastily, and that (as suspected) they were really only concerned about game video rights. The only other interesting tidbit is that the SEC will not play policeman. Its partner in making the SEC Digital Network, XOS Technologies, will be on the hook for enforcing the policy. All in all it sounds like the conference doesn't really care much about social media, got duped by its media partners into drafting a draconian policy, and now is having to backtrack to something reasonable based on fan and media outcry.
