Product Name: Joint Ventures and Brand Licensing following American Needle
In American Needle, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the NFL's licensing program for individual football teams' intellectual property conducted through the NFL's joint licensing entity, NFL Properties, constituted concerted action that was not categorically beyond the coverage of Section 1 of the Sherman Act. The Supreme Court reversed the Seventh Circuit's ruling that the NFL acts as a single entity in licensing intellectual property and thus is immune from scrutiny under Section 1. The Supreme Court held that because each of the NFL teams is a substantial, independently owned, and independently managed business, the NFL and its teams do not possess either the unitary decision making quality or the single aggregation of economic power characteristic of independent action.
Nevertheless, the opinion leaves open a number of important issues such as when a "quick look" approach is warranted and the decision's application to other activities of professional sports teams. This significant decision not only affects professional sports leagues, but also potentially reaches a wide range of joint ventures involving potential competitors and associations that engage in cooperative activity but maintain individual identities within that framework.
Please note that this program will be offered as a live program as well as a webcast. If you prefer to attend the live webcast please register as a webcast attendee.
