In this Second Edition, Peter A. Carfagna (former Chief Legal Officer at IMG and now a Visiting Lecturer in Sports Law at Harvard Law School), expands upon the first edition of the ;Legal Evolution of America's Three 'Major Leagues; by providing unique insights into the most significant Sports Law developments that have occurred since the publication of his first edition. In particular, the reader will note in-depth treatments of the Supreme Court's landmark ;American Needle; decision, as well as of the controversial ;Star Caps; case which challenged the NFL's drug testing policies. The revised text and related Hypotheticals also illuminate the increasing tension between players';social media;publicity rights; and the oftentimes conflicting rights claimed by the Major Leagues and their teams. Similarly ;franchise relocation; updates are provided, including a special section regarding Major/Minor League Baseball's convoluted franchise relocation issues. A new Appendix containing a history of Major League ;work stoppages; is particularly timely, given the current state of collective bargaining negotiation ongoing within each of the Three Major Leagues. Another new Appendix contains a revised Course Study Guide, which should make the book accessible not only as an introduction to law school faculty or students considering a first course in sports law, but also to undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing a career in sports law or marketing.
