1 Scopus citations


The purpose of this article is to explain which American laws have been applied to four common types of collegiate student-athlete privacy invasions: education records, names or likenesses, surveillance, and forced disclosure of information. Examining cases specific to collegiate student athletes benefits sports journalism scholars by shedding light on how the collegiate sports landscape has been shaped by student-athlete privacy litigation. This knowledge can help scholars forecast news-gathering obstacles and, as a result, better understand the sports journalism environment.
