May's issue of World Sports Advocate

May's issue of World Sports Advocate - formerly World Sports Law Report - provides expert analysis and thought leadership on the key legal, regulatory and policy issues impacting sports business.

This month's issue focuses on a range of topics relevant to the sporting world, including image rights, competition law sanctions, anti-doping, the taxation of buy-out clauses in football, and cyber security.

Highlights of the latest issue include indepth analysis of the new possibility for sportsmen and women to enter into separate image rights agreements with employers in France that will exist alongside the employment contract by Claudia Massa of Avens and Michel Collet of CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre. Claudia and Michel investigate how France's new Law might work in practice and explore the areas that will need to be clarified by the forthcoming decree on the matter.
