Week 8: Media Law

By Hope Weston

A current law case regarding copyright infringement and individual right-of-publicity is a case between the National Football League and 23 different major league football players who claim the NFL wrongfully made videos and commercials without their permission and therefore encroaching on their rights. Twenty of the plaintiff’s settled and the other cases were ultimately concluded to have no case because the NFL did not share false statements in anyway.
