CPM Supports College Athletes Against NCAA

CPM has filed a brief on behalf of Professors of Sports Economics and Management supporting the right of Division I athletes to receive compensation for the use of their likenesses. Division I colleges and the NCAA make billions of dollars from college athletes, but as Judge Claudia Wilken ruled they violate the antitrust laws by denying compensation to the players. The case will soon be heard by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Steve Williams and Adam Zapala – a former NCAA Division I player and First Team All-American – authored the brief.
