We are pleased to announce that our Summer Issue of Volume 14 has been released and is live here. We are so grateful for our authors and the incredible pieces that they wrote.
First we have an essay by Professors Alex Sinatra and Trayveon Williams, College Athletics and NIL: Perspectives from a Practitioner and an Athlete, which provides unique perspectives on the emerging world of NIL and how student athletes are leveraging NIL laws to their advantage.
Professors Jorge Contreras and Dave Fagundes wrote The Life Story Rights Puzzle, a piece diving into the legal rights and customs surrounding life rights, and their use in film and the complexity that underlies them.
Christopher Deubert wrote the next piece, entitled “Baseball Would Certainly Fail”: A History of Sports Leagues’ Hyperbolic Predictions in the 20th Century’s Biggest Cases and the Largely Successful Evolution of Their Arguments. Mr. Deubert provides an exploration into the history of some of the biggest cases in baseball and the arguments made within them.
Dr. Joel Timmer’s article, NOT Playing at a Theater Near You: Deceptive Movie Trailers and the First Amendment, describes a recent case where a studio faced legal liability for deceptive advertising where their trailer depicted an actress and a scene not present in the film and the potential legal ramifications this could have on the future.
Destroying Defamation is Leslie Tenzer’s article which outlines the unforeseen consequences of labeling news as “fake” and its effect specifically on defamation claims.
Last we have a book review written by Nick Noonan on Understanding Sports Law by Timothy Davis and N. Jeremi Duru. This review outlines a great new book on sports law and legal education.
