Abstract

This article addresses the seminal issue in O'Bannon v. NCAA lawsuit filed in the USDC-Northern District of California. Paying college players while they are student-athletes has huge risks. The student athlete's mind-set and purpose could become distorted. Also, wealthier schools could buy up talent and disrupt the competitive balance. Paying student-athletes "after" they leave college is a topic for another day.

This article should be read in conjunction with NYSBA: The Right of Publicity - Show me the Money, posted herein on Jan. 2014. http://ssrn.com/abstract=2388775

Keywords: O'Bannon v. NCAA, Right of Publicity, Student-Athletes, Paying College Players
