The groundbreaking Supreme Court of the United States case, NCAA v. Alston, opened the door for student-athletes to obtain compensation for use of his or her “name, image, or likeness” (“NILs”) in marketing or promotion materials at a local, state, regional, and national level. In Alston, the Supreme Court agreed with the challenging group of student-athletes that the NCAA rules limiting compensation compared to that offered in a free market violated federal antitrust regulations. Until Congress passes uniform federal legislation, there is no guidance and states are left to create their own legislation. Right now, 15 states have legislation pending and 26 have NILs legislation passed, which includes New Jersey. This author believes the NJ legislation is problematic and needs to be fixed.
