Entertainment: Agency Doesn't Understand Laws About Its Own Business

According to HuffPost, WME Entertainment has blacklisted the University of Oklahoma for releasing "private information," that is actually public information. under the Freedom of Information Act.

FOIA is a federal piece of legislation that allows private individuals to request and obtain certain federal document (with some exceptions), including educational entertainment contracts, such as those involved in this debacle."

WME's complaint demands that the U-of-OK adapt its policy to contradict both the First Amendment and the FOIA legislation, and blaming the lapse on the school paper instead of the federal government.

More information regarding the Freedom of Information Act can be found at FOIA.gov.
