Sport - In Yer Face!

Trade marks. Image rights. Copyright. Rihanna’s face? Damon Hill’s eyes…? The Mobot??!

Maximising talent’s commercial potential means making sure that endorsements, brand and image are working together. The protection and the structure have got to be right from the outset. And they have to keep working if the talent, or the management, head in a different direction.

  • What structures can help to maximise the value of the talent’s brand? And what has HMRC got to say about it?
  • What are the benefits to intermediaries and to talent of splitting playing and promotional contracts? 
  • Representation contracts: What are the pitfalls? What can you do when striking the bargain to minimise the fallout later?
