Protection of IPR, Sports Betting Regulation, EU Sports Policy and other hot topics under the spot light
Nyon, 02 February 2011 – The 7th edition of the EPFL Sports Law Bulletin has just been released.
As in previous editions, the Sports Law Bulletin is providing a comprehensive overview of all matters of relevance in the sporting world, with a particular focus on the latest projects as well as political and legal initiatives at the European level.
In his editorial, the EPFL CEO, Emanuel Macedo de Medeiros, a lawyer himself, turns a particular attention to the latest developments in the realm of intellectual property rights and betting integrity and stresses the promises made by EU Commissioner Michel Barnier during his address to the EPFL General Assembly last July in Paris.
IP rights are also taking increasing prominence at the European Court of Justice where the’FA Premier League vs QC Leisure’ case is currently pending. As underlined by the EPFL CEO in this edition, the findings of this affair may potentially transform the entire landscape of sports media contents and the way they are currently sold, a scenario which could lead to devastating consequences for the whole sport.
To further feed the discussions, the EPFL Sports Law Bulletin hosts a series of opinion articles by several sports law specialists, such as Richard Parrish, Robert Siekmann, Ruggero Stincardini, Phillippe Diallo, Matthieu Moreuil, Oliver Weingarten, Juan de Dios Crespo, Fernando Veiga Gomes, Orlando Carvalho and many more, who share their expertise on those matters as well as other subjects of legal interest.
This edition will also provide you with first-hand news on the main activities and plans set up by the EPFL from June to October 2010.
In the EPFL Sports Law Bulletin, Leagues’ Executives and the whole football legal community will also be able to find the very latest developments within the field of legislation, national and international sports regulations, jurisprudence rendered by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, European Court of Justice, FIFA Transfer Matching System, as well as the latest IFAB decisions.Back to All News
