Sports is probably one of the greatest instruments of social cohesion in today’s conflict-stricken world. It has grown from being just an activity for leisure to an activity that is treated as an industry and like all industries, there are innumerable issues that crop up day in and day out. Sports Law in India: Policy, Regulation and Commercialisation presents the legal challenges that sports faces in India today and further debates on the numerous legal issues, policies and regulations that have arisen and are most likely to arise in the near future. It discusses current issues such as spot fixing, public access to sporting events, doping controversies, concerns about religion in sports, and broadcasting law and taxation of earnings from sports. The book also compares the recent legal developments in India with the international sports law to provide a better understanding.

Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this practical analysis of sports law in India deals with the regulation of sports activity by both public authorities and private sports organizations. The growing internationalization of sports inevitably increases the weight of global regulation, yet each country maintains its own distinct regime of sports law and its own national and local sports organizations. Sports law at a national or organizational level thus gains a growing relevance in comparative law. The book describes and discusses both state-created rules and autonomous self-regulation regarding the variety of economic, social, commercial, cultural, and political aspects of sports activities. Self- regulation manifests itself in the form of by-laws, and encompasses organizational provisions, disciplinary rules, and rules of play. However, the trend towards more professionalism in sports and the growing economic, social and cultural relevance of sports have prompted an increasing reliance on legal rules adopted by public authorities. This form of regulation appears in a variety of legal areas, including criminal law, labour law, commercial law, tax law, competition law, and tort law, and may vary following a particular type or sector of sport. It is in this dual and overlapping context that such much-publicized aspects as doping, sponsoring and media, and responsibility for injuries are legally measured. This monograph fills a gap in the legal literature by giving academics, practitioners, sports organizations, and policy makers access to sports law at this specific level. Lawyers representing parties with interests in India will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its value in the study of comparative sports law.

The Gambling Law Review, edited by Carl Rohsler of Squire Patton Boggs, enables a lawyer or executive to swiftly and effectively 'plug in' to the regulatory and legal structure of a wide range of jurisdictions across the world, and understand in a few pages the legal climate, the likely issues that will arise in doing business in that jurisdiction and the overall legal risk.

Contributing firms include: Addisons Lawyers, McCann FitzGerald, Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck LLP, and Squire Patton Boggs.
