NFL Prevails in Publicity Rights Case

United States - Minnesota

The National Football League won a decisive publicity rights victory when the 8th Circuit rejected the appeal of three former NFL players claiming damages for the use of their likeness in NFL Films productions. The players had opted out of a class settlement and pursued their own suit. The 8th Circuit found that the Copyright Act preempted the players' right-of-publicity claims and affirmed a grant of summary judgment to the NFL.
