NPPA.org is reporting that the NCAA is holding a meeting next week to determine what to do with Sportsshooter.com members who post images of collegiate athletes in their member galleries. Their story begins as follows:

The letters asked the photographers to remove images of student athletes from their Web site portfolios.
