This is based on the idea that there exists a team or a club image distinct from the individual image of the players within the team. This right allows exemption from social charges on a part of the player’s salary.
This right only applies to professional sportsmen and women and only exists when the image of a number of players (the minimum number of players in group depending on the sport) appears on the same advertisement or poster, etc in an identical or similar manner. The right to a collective image is, therefore, an area which requires specific abilities and knowledge, which is found at RMS Avocats. The law firm also provides services to determine the financial benefits stemming from this right, as well as to advise clients, sports players, professional athletes or professional clubs, on any question concerning this right. RMS Avocats is also qualified to defend their clients in conflicts on this subject.
