Expert: Hollywood AI, streaming grievances mirror those facing high-profile athletesJuly 19, 20231 min read
Actors on strike are calling for increased pay and a rethinking of residuals, which union members say have significantly diminished amid the rise of streaming services. They’re also seeking protections against artificial intelligence.
Tulane University’s Gabriel Feldman, director of the Tulane Sports Law Program, says these grievances in Hollywood are strikingly similar to those surrounding U.S. sports. Gabe is one of the leading voices in the country in the growing field of sports law. He can speak to:
• Sticking point in Hollywood grievances is the use of NIL (Name, Image and Likeness), the use of AI and how actors will be paid;
• NIL became an issue with sports athletes, especially the college athletes, who had zero pay for the use of their name and image;
• Feldman is currently dealing with the issue of NIL and AI on the sports law front, and Tulane is known for its nationally recognized sports and entertainment law conference, which is held each spring.
