Breahna Karmann HSES 384 Sports Law 8 Sept 2015 The case of O’Bannon vs. the NCAA consists of the plaintiff Edward O’Bannon Jr. and the defendants NCAA, the collegiate licensing company and their co- conspirators including the NCAA’s member’s schools and conferences. The NCAA had unreasonable and illegally restrained trade in order to commercially exploit former student- athletes previously subject to its control. With such exploitation affecting those individuals well into their post- collegiate competition lives. The NCAA’s conduct is blatantly anticompetitive and exclusionary, as it wipes out ownership interests of past athletes in their own images for the future. The NCAA has made it so that former student- athletes cannot receive any money from the substantial revenue. The former student- athletes do not receive any of these revenues even though they never gave informed consent to exploitation of their images.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
