Web Editor - Published: April 4, 2011
“The topic of today’s lecture is ethics in the
entertainment industry. There are none.
Thanks, that’s it,” quipped Bob Donnelly, Esq.
of the Lommen Abdo Law Firm at the
beginning of the morning Ethics Panel “The
Biggest Practice Mistakes to Avoid,” during
the Sixth Annual Sports and Entertainment
Law CLE Symposium held on Friday, April
1st on Widener Law’s Delaware campus.
The symposium, hosted by the student-run
Sports and Entertainment Law Association,
brought together noted attorneys practicing in
the area of entertainment and sports law to
discuss current and emerging issues in the
field. Adjunct Professor Alexander Murphy,
the faculty advisor to SELA, offered the
morning welcome and kept the event moving along. In addition to the morning Ethics panel that featured
Donnelly and Ken Abdo of Lommen Abdo, the daylong program also featured panels on Music, Sports, and
TV and Film.
The Music panel featured Bernard M. Resnick, Esq. and John P.Luneau, Esq. Resnick presented “Legal
Issues on Stage – Concert Tour Update,” and Luneau’s talk was entitled “DIY: Is it the New Reality of the
Record Business?” The TV and Film Panel examined the impact of piracy on the film industry as Thomas
M. Dunlap, Esq. of Dunlap, Grubb, & Weaver and Barbara Mudge, President of Worldwide Film
Entertainment, LLC, presented “The Scope of Illegal Downloading and Film Piracy.”
“The NFL lockout is a very scary thing,” said Everette Scott, Esq., a 1994 graduate of Widener Law, to
begin the day’s final panel, which focused on the NFL’s current Collective Bargaining woes and the issue of
minority coaching opportunities in athletics. Mr. Scott, of the Scott Group LLC in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey,
discussed the lockout and his experiences representing NFL players.
Edward Wasielewski, Esq., President of EMG Sports Management, joined Mr. Scott on the panel. In
addition to offering his own thoughts on the lockout, Mr. Wasielewski discussed how he became an NFL
agent, relating the story of how he secured his first client; former Arizona Cardinal and Carolina Panther
defensive back Jermaine Hardy.
The Sports Panel closed with a consideration of minority representation in athletics. Professor andré douglas
pond cummings of West Virginia University College of Law spoke about the troubling history of sports and
race relations. He noted that while access issues on the playing field have largely been eradicated, that there
are still access issues for minority candidates when it comes to coaching and front office opportunities.
