Intellectual Property and College Athletes – New Directions by NCAA about Compensation

On November 26, 2019 by Schnader in Client Alerts

W. Drew Kastner and E. Taylor Hodges published a new client alert, “Intellectual Property and College Athletes – New Directions by NCAA about Compensation.” The alert states in part:

“The rules for compensation of college athletes have become a hot issue involving state legislation, litigation, and a major announcement by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The NCAA recently announced it intends to implement major changes regarding student athletes’ compensation for their intellectual property rights and right of publicity. Although the NCAA statement declared the general thrust of its expected policy changes, details of how these new rules will work remain unclear. Until those details are determined, recent developments indicate that universities may want to consider reviewing their internal policies and preparing for a possible new order of intellectual property and publicity rights for student athletes.”
