WWE Has A Number Of GIF Posting Twitter Accounts Suspended During SummerSlam Weekend.

http://www.wrestlingnewssource.com/n...tter-Accounts/

"WWE had a number of Twitter accounts suspended over SummerSlam weekend for posting GIF's of the pay-per-view.

One of the biggest names suspended was Senor Lariato, who posted highlights of GIF's from wrestling all over the world. In fact, he was credited as one of the key people in making New Japan Pro Wrestling popular to a number of American fans.

WWE has in recent months started to post GIF's themselves although rather then this being a matter of competition, it solely comes downs to a violation of WWE's copyright.

If WWE allows GIF's to be posted then it makes legal battles with streaming sites harder as lawyers could argue that WWE allow people to rebroadcast their events on Twitter. Some accounts were posting sizable portions of the event in GIF form."

From fan's perspective, I dislike this, but I fully understand. At least in the cases where a good portion of match is posted in gif form.

Makes sense tbh. The WWE knows that no one would get the WWE network and watch 4 hours of Summerslam when the only thing of note was Brock busting Orton open, which can be encapsulated in GIF form.

(I'd recommend anyone who hasn't seen the PPV to just watch that GIF instead though, save you wasting 4 hours of your life)
