ON THE ATHLETES
AND THEIR BEST INTERESTS
NAME IMAGE LIKENESS: YOUR RIGHTS
Your name, image, and likeness (NIL) rights include the right to control the use of your identity in a commercial landscape. Name, image, and likeness are just three components that encompass your “right of publicity.” Other components, such as signature, social media account, nickname, and symbols, can also fall under your NIL rights.
NIL rights can help you stop companies from using your branding without permission. For example, strong NIL attorney protection will force corporations to compensate you for doing the following:
- Selling a jersey that includes your name or nickname
- Featuring you in a commercial or advertisement
- Including you in a video game or other virtual media
Athletes should receive compensation in most instances when a company uses their branding to make money.
NIL rights are constantly shifting under new state legislation and NCAA-wide policies. As knowledgeable lawyers, we can help you navigate these complex rules to maintain your rights and ensure that you receive adequate compensation for any unauthorized NIL scenarios.
We are a call away!
