The NFL has always enforced their copyright, particularly against business establishments (IE: bars) that do not have their permission to show the game to an audience (I'm not sure how often they enforce it for non-Superbowl games, though). Makes sense because the establishments use it as an attraction to draw business (read: profiting off the NFL).
