The Sports Report: Sports, Consumer Protection, and Antitrust - A Year in Review
1:30 PM EST
Rarely have antitrust and consumer protection issues played as significant role in collegiate and professional sports as they did in 2014. The Sports Report will tackle the most complex and pressing antitrust and consumer protection issues of 2014, and preview what is to come in 2015. Our terrific set of panelists will discuss a myriad of issues, including: San Jose’s Section 1 lawsuit against MLB; efforts to curb the FCC’s sports blackout rule; controversy surrounding the safety of football helmets; the recent Section 2 complaint against the UFC; and the various Section 1 antitrust lawsuits against the NCAA. Don’t miss it!
