State-sanctioned sports betting has exploded since the Supreme Court’s Murphy v. NCAA decision in 2018.  Since then, the states have taken varying approaches to sports betting, and the private sector, which developed sports-related securities even before Murphy, has developed innovative financial products.  In this panel, we will provide an overview of state and federal regulation of traditional sports betting, discuss how the SEC and CFTC also have a role to play, and consider lingering tension between federal and state regulation.  We will also discuss specific products (such as binary options and event contracts) and their regulatory treatment, how sports bets and other sports-related financial products are or may be regulated by the CFTC or SEC, and emerging competitive and compliance challenges, among other topics.

Within the past decade, the number of independent artists--artists releasing music while not signed under a major or independent label, or releasing music under their own established label--has risen exponentially in the United States--representing a $640 million industry in 2018 alone. This is a growing movement in the world of music, and we will look at its current and future effects on the industry, from major and independent labels, to publishing and distribution companies, to the artists themselves.
