Abstract

The study's main objectives are to map the legal framework applicable to the origin and ownership of rights to sports events (sports organizers' rights) in the 28 EU Member States; to analyze the nature and scope of sports organizers' rights with regard to licensing practices in the field of the media; and to examine the possibility of establishing licensing practices beyond the media field, notably in the area of gambling and betting. Following this, the study formulates recommendations on the opportunity of EU action to address any problems that may be identified in the above mentioned areas of analysis.

Keywords: sports organizers' rights, sport law, property, intellectual property, media law, competition law, EU law, gambling regulations, recommendations
