Lawsuit Reheard In Appellate Court
OTHER PROPERTIES VOCAL: A group of large sports properties, including the NFL, NBA, NHL and NASCAR, yesterday repeated its collective amicus brief filing from early this year, speaking out in favor of MLBAM and the MLBPA and urging for a reversal of the decision in favor of CDM. “The panel’s decision threatens to undermine the validity and enforceability of the non-use and no-contest provisions in scores of intellectual property license agreements into which [we] have entered, and eradicate the right of publicity for anyone who has achieved sufficient fame to make the right worth protecting.” There is no timetable for the appeals court to decide upon the rehearing request, though it is likely it will first give CDM an opportunity to respond.
