Entertainment, Art & Sports

The National Law Review is a free no-login resource for legal articles on entertainment law, art law and sports law. Included in our commentary are various gaming and gambling laws throughout the United States, including issues that intersect with Native American and Tribal law.  Updates on gaming regulations across jurisdictions, as well as legislation as new states and municipalities, legalize gaming are all covered by the legal experts who write for the National Law Review. 

Additionally, the National Law Review covers the employment issues that can come up in workplaces with sports and gaming, including the legality of fantasy sports particularly in the workplace.  Other issues with fantasy sports, in terms of their legality across a variety of jurisdictions, are also broken down by legal experts as they arise.  Furthermore, litigation surrounding gaming, fantasy sports, video games, including intellectual property and trademark litigation, is also covered. 

We also examine sports law as it relates to professional sports such as equal pay for men's and women's teams, and governance of international sporting bodies such as the English Premier League, the Football Association, and Fédération Internationale de Football Association ("FIFA").  Issues surrounding major sports stories can sometimes feature a surprising legal twist,  such as Ambush Marketing at the 2018 World Cup, or judging at the Olympics, and coverage of NFL protests and the impact on player’s constitutional rights.

Our commentary also includes the effect that labor law has on student-athletes and college sports, and updated regulations in the NCAA, and how it might impact favorite teams.  The issue of unpaid students athletes and litigation surrounding that issue was extensively documented by the writers at the National Law Review.

We also cover the intersectionality between entertainment law and intellectual property law, such as trademark of goods and services, music and movie copyright infringement, and broadcasting rights.  Additionally, the National Law Review has legal analysis pertaining to artists' rights and litigation involving those issues.
