The typically subdued and etiquette-filled sport of professional golf is anything but these days, as a highly contentious battle between the establishment PGA Tour and its newly formed rival LIV Golf has spilled into federal court. LIV and its players allege the PGA operates as a monopoly that violates antitrust laws, while the PGA insists it’s under attack from a well-funded venture that’s successfully luring PGA players away with highly lucrative contracts. On this week’s episode of Pro Say, we tee up a segment with Joseph Hanna, co-chair of Goldberg Segalla’s sports industry practice, to unpack this whole saga and help us make sense of it. Also this week: The Federal Circuit definitively decides that artificial intelligence can’t be named as inventors on patents; A former Twitter employee is found guilty of sharing data on users who were critical of the Saudi royal family; and finally, new research that shows judges sometimes channel their inner college freshman by using Wikipedia as a shortcut.
