Abstract

If I told you that there are nearly half a million people in the United States who represent their respective organizations, work over 40 hours a week to perfect their craft and yet are not allowed to earn money with the help of the very craft that got them there, what would you have to say? Yes, I am talking about the very student–athletes in our country that represent their respective universities as well as the National Collegiate Athletic Association but are still prohibited from earning money outside of what their college provides them with in terms of athletic aid. Not only do these student athletes give their time and effort to their schools, but their names and their identities too. For their entire duration as a student athlete and beyond, they are associated with their specific schools and if the schools can market and promote themselves through their athletes’ performance, why are the athletes prohibited from doing so for themselves? College athletes must be allowed to use their name, image and likeness in an attempt to earn money if they so please.
