Competing Single-Entity Tests in American Needle v. NFL and Their Implications for Sports Leagues and Other Joint Ventures


Author Info

  • Gregory Pelnar


The basic question raised by American Needle is: Are the NFL and its member clubs a single-entity with respect to their trademark licensing activities? In answering this question, an even more basic question is raised: By what criteria can a single-entity be identified? There is profound disagreement on the answer to this question, not only between the litigants, but also among the courts, economists, and legal scholars as well. Greg Pelnar, Compass Lexecon
