JONES DAY TALKS®: Alston, the NCAA, and the Future of College Sports



The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled 9-0 in National Collegiate Athletic Association v.

Signed into law by California Gov. Gavin Newsom, the Fair Pay to Play Act will allow college athletes in that state to accept payment for the use of their name, image, and likeness.
