    I am beginning to develop a book (novel) centered on professional football, and am curious what the NFL copyright laws maybe with regards using NFL team and player names in a book. Is it out of the question, or possible to gain approval or authorization from the NFL? What info can you provide me?

    Thanks!

    Could be fair use, depending on several factors. It is fact specific, case-by-case analysis. A good (and free) start is to visit the copyright office website, informational circular on Fair Use. Feel free to call me if you'd like to discuss questions after reading.
