FanDuel illegally uses Georgia Tech players’ likenesses

FanDuel isn’t exactly having the best week.

First, they’re facing the loss of ad time on SEC networks and now they’re in hot water for using images of former Georiga Tech players in advertisements without their knowledge, compensation or permission from Georgia Tech’s athletic department.

For weeks, images of Roddy Jones and Jason Peters from the 2011 Yellow Jackets football calendar were used illegally in numerous FanDuel ads.

Through a spokesperson, Jones claimed he had only found out about the ads just last week and that he hasn’t been compensated at all for the use of his image.

Not only are fantasy sites facing scrutiny from many who question the gambling aspects of the site unethical, but now, FanDuel is having to apologize for unethical advertising.

FanDuel, you’ve some serious explaining to do.
