ITF Circuit Regulations 2013
 
http://www.itftennis.com/media/136302/136302.pdf

Just started reading these, well, the underlined bits anyhow.

p. 64

2. DATA PROTECTION
Each Tournament shall not allow or authorise the dissemination, transmission,
publication or release of any match score or related statistical data from the
grounds of the Tournament.
:hysteric:

Don't take your phone to an ITF? Perhaps I'm misinterpreting, it is late.

What's the ITF Tournament Planner software they're talking about, by the way? Is it http://tournamentsoftware.com?

No. (Nearly) live scores will be available via the preferred online bookmaker, for whose benefit this rule exists.

Sportradar has a four year deal to distribute data.

Just like Enetpulse bought the rights for the ATP/WTA data last year.

Scoring should be fine. It just means that tournaments will need to use the ITF selected provider, so if live scoring is provided it should all be on the same platform, as opposed to what we have at the moment which is ad-hoc and individual events do it differently or use different software. It will in theory, when combined with the earlier quoted rule, mean a ban on tweeting or posting live scores/results from events which do not have live scoring. Which is stupid.

"The ITF will have the exclusive right to provide a scoring service at any ITF Pro Circuit tournament as selected by the ITF. Each tournament will assist the ITF in its efforts to produce the service."

The appendix covering media rights, data etc... is quite detailed and covers provision of live streams as well as live scoring. Effectively ITF will have sole right to decide on streaming for bookmaker purposes, but national associations can host their own live streams (with at least a 30sec time delay) if they want.
