A CBS Corp. unit sued the National Football League Players Association over the group's demand that it receive licensing fees for the use of players' names and statistics in fantasy football leagues.

CBS Interactive, which offers fantasy sports leagues on its Web site, asked a federal judge this week to find that the association is violating antitrust laws.

The broadcaster seeks a ruling that the association may not "extract money from CBS Interactive for the use of publicly available football statistics," lawyers for the company said in the suit, filed in federal court in Minneapolis.

The suit comes more than three months after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected an appeal from Major League Baseball and its players association seeking to overturn a ruling that lets a fantasy-sports company use players' names and statistics without paying licensing fees.
