National Finals Rodeo, The 53rd National Finals Rodeo is back in Las Vegas for the 27th year at the Thomas & Mack Center. The NFR is a championship event held annually by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. The event moved to Las Vegas in 1985.

Almost 120 cowboys and cowgirls will be competing in Las Vegas for $6 million dollars and a bunch of shiny gold buckles during the 10-day sold-out event that began last night.

The event draws thousands of fans each year to Las Vegas and pumps millions of dollars into the local economy.

Each cowboy and cowgirl is guaranteed to make about $14,000 minimum at the event.

Events include bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, bull riding, and barrel racing.

Last year’s big winner was Trevor Brazile, the eight-time and reigning Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association all-around champion.

Brazile made $507, 921 last year, including a record $211,509 in two events at the NFR.

He is close to the record of 51 go-round wins held by saddle bronc riding legend Billy Etbauer. Brazile has won 48.

The NFR begins at 6:45 p.m. each night and runs until 9 p.m. through Dec. 10. Tickets are sold out but people can still try to get tickets by going to the NFR Exchange.

PRCA, The PRCA is considering the position of the Court of Appeal after losing its court battle with the Agency for authorization of payment for newspapers on the web links
The representative body argued with meltwater news that the bodies should be free to receive services of media monitoring of heavy toll.

But in a ruling last Friday, Mrs Justice Proudman ruled that the Web links from news sources online are protected by copyright.

Judgement and cons Meltwater News PRCA found that online service cuttings violate copyright of publishers if they grouped links online without a license NLA.

The NLA has welcomed the ruling. “We hope this decision will help ensure a fair share of the revenue monitoring web publishers and media fair market surveillance,” said David Pugh MD. “Create new content for the web is an important investment for publishers. It is, therefore, that they take a fair share when others are profit. ”

But PRCA Director General Francis Ingham responded defiantly to the decision, saying PRWeek: “As we consider the grounds of appeal, it is not diminishing our confidence that the NLA has no right to impose license End-user organizations and individuals who receive monitoring services directing them to the newspapers’ own sites.”

The PRCA has 14 days to appeal and plans to announce its next move next week.

Unit co-founder Gerry Hopkinson expressed her support for the position of the PRCA is: “To assert your moral right to be recognized as the author or publisher is one thing, but trying to restrict the free flow of information seems a bit much, “he said.

Fishburn Hedges MD Fiona Thorne added: “It is quite understandable for content creators wanting to protect and generate income, what they create.
