July's issue of World Sports Advocate

July'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 developments relevant to the sporting world, including the trade mark dispute between Kellogg Company and tennis player Thanasi Kokkinakis, human rights in sport, the data ownership issues raised by wearable technologies utilised within sport, and the criminalisation of doping as a positive step towards the elimination of the doping problem.

Highlights of the latest issue include indepth discussion by Mikhail Prokopets and Ilya Chicherov of SILA International Lawyers Company, on the liberalisation of betting advertisings during live sport to raise funds for sport. Now that bookmakers are allowed to advertise during live sport broadcasts in exchange for payments to national sports federations and professional sports leagues, Prokopets and Chicherov study the legal changes, the possible benefits and the concerns raised.

Elsewhere in the issue, John Morrison, Chief Executive at the Institute for Human Rights and Business, provides insight into the Institute for Human Rights and Business’ work which aims to place human rights at the centre of mega-sporting events, in light of the recent human rights commitments made by four of the major sports governing bodies.
