I have no doubt the idea is to prevent you from getting any level of quality image that you could sell (which would be illegal but hardly stops people these days).

The problem with indoor shooting (hockey wise) is you need relatively high ISO and fast lenses (to freeze the action) which are less available on the smaller cameras.

I double checked my lens and it is actually just under 6 inches compressed but over 6 extended. I may be tempted to just leave it home today anyway. It will likely be too crowded to get as close as I can get at Anaheim Ice tomorrow.
