May 8, 2024

Los Angeles Partner Trisha E. Newman has been invited to speak at the 2024 Sports Lawyers Association (SLA) Annual Conference taking place on May 9-11 in Baltimore, Maryland. This panel will discuss the intersection of emerging technologies and data privacy within the realm of sports law, with a specific focus on the implications of Artificial Intelligence and potential legislation that will affect usage. They will explore the nuanced issues surrounding privacy and publicity rights as AI technologies capture, manipulate, and process the image and likeness of athletes, fans, and coaches. The discussion will examine the increasing importance of liability, ownership, and control over digital identities, particularly as individuals are increasingly required to record their voices or waive rights to their images for use in entertainment and beyond.

The SLA understands the importance of fostering connections among like-minded individuals, and this annual conference serves as a hub for passionate sports law professionals from around the globe. Ms. Newman is a member of the SLA in which she is Captain of the Women’s Affinity Group. Click on the following link to learn more about the Sports Lawyers Association and the annual conference.
