The NFL says they are if the game is shown on anything besides one screen of no more than 55 inches, and if the 'Super Bowl trademark' is infringed, as by publishing that name as something like "Super Bowl Bash" on a church website. Several churches in the Indianapolis area, including Tony Dungy's church, scrapped plans for such parties after the NFL made copyright infringment threats against one church. http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/6436876 Businesses like sports bars are allowed to show the game on big screens because an exception is made for establishments in which sports viewing is a 'significant' part of their business. This is interesting. Coaches Dungy and Smith can get up before stadium and media microphones on an NFL broadcast and talk about their faith, but in the organizations to promote that faith it is forbidden to show such a speech to more than a relatively few people. And the NFL allows its telecasts on any size screen in a for-profit business where people get wilder and more rude, possibly violent, as the game goes on, but they do not allow it in a setting where that is far less likely to happen. On one hand, some will say this may be justice because churches which arranged big SB parties were going 'worldly' anyway, so they should face any worldly consequences. Others, who considered the SB an 'opportunity' for a gathering which includes a message and offers of fellowship and guidance, may be inclined to see this as an infringment not of copyright, but of ministry and a church's own business, which is no less protected.
