Published Speech: The Legal Status of Fantasy Sports in a Changing Business Environment

On March 20, 2015, I had the pleasure of giving a speech at Northern Kentucky Law Review's symposium on the "New Era of Gaming Law" about the legal status of fantasy sports in a changing business environment.   The speech looks at the history of fantasy sports and "daily fantasy sports," as well as the legality of "daily fantasy sports" under federal and state law.  The speech is also among the first to explain why consistent winners in a "daily fantasy sports" contest is not, in itself, enough to indicate the contest is a "game of skill" under relevant state law.

Just in time for fantasy football season, here is a link to my speech.
