I'm not a legal expert and have not done extensive research into the legal aspects of this case, but I have one question for DN that many others have brought up or mentioned I believe...if the WPT does not intend to profit or use the likenesses of any players that play in WPT events, then why don't they change the release? Is it absolutely necessary for the purposes of the show? DN, or anyone else for that matter with accurate knowledge of this matter, could u clarify?
No one will clarify. I have asked this same question and it is ignored. They don't change the release because it is potentially very valuable to them. They DO intend to profit from it someday, or at least know they CAN profit from it someday. And so there is no reason why a change to the release form would not be a valuable (maybe very minutely for some, but valuable nonetheless) act for every person that ever plays on the WPT.
