Recent Name-Image-Likeness (NIL) News

Charles I by Sir Anthony Van Dyck

Well here we are on 17Dec2020 and ESPN, the WWL, and its’ writer Dan Murphy has put out an Name-Image_Likeness (NIL) update of sorts. He goes into detail in his article irt the Blumenthal-Booker Bill, more commonly known as the Players Bill of Rights, which is working its’ way through Congress. The Bill of Rights is hoped to get worked on and passed during the 1st half of 2021 in Congress to cut off a potential avalanche of individual state bills beginning in July 2021 with Florida’s version.

Bluenotes has looked repeatedly at the slate of proposed NIL bills including the NCAA’s take, in our 3 presentations on Name-Image-Likeness. Our 16 Sep 20 article and 2 youtube videos go into depth on the NIL subject matter. Take a look.

For what it’s worth, Murphy does a good job of delineating the Blumenthal-Booker BoR in his article. The BoR is the most sweeping, comprehensive of the 4 national bills currently circulating. It is the most lucrative for players and is a gamechanger of the current collegiate landscape.
