Cease-and-desist
letters sent after
Denard Robinson
clothing popped up
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
Local apparel vendors look-
ing to make some big money off
Denard Robinson's meteoric rise
this season got some bad news
in the mail last week. To address
NCAA compliance issues brought
to the attention of the University's
Athletic Department, letters were
sent to a handful of vendors selling
Michigan apparel.
The letters, sent last Thurs-
day by the Athletic Department's
Director of Compliance Judy Van
Horn, called on vendors to dis-
continue production and sales of
apparel that featured references
to current Michigan student-ath-
letes. Producing and selling goods
that feature the names, pictures or
likenesses of student-athletes is a
violation of NCAA regulations.
Specifically, NCAA regulations
stipulate that "items that include
an individual student-athlete's
name, picture or likeness, other
than information items, may not

be sold."
The regulation calls out jerseys
and bobblehead dolls as examples
of items that are banned from
being sold in the likeness of a stu-
dent-athlete. However, the NCAA
regulations also specifically call
out media
guides, sched-
ule cards and
institutional
publications
as examples
of items that
may contain

nesses.
In an inter-
view yesterday, Athletic Depart-
ment spokesman David Ablauf
outlined the circumstances sur-
roundingtherecentbatch of letters
sent to athletic apparel vendors.
"You're not allowed to produce
apparel with a student-athlete's
name or any of his likenesses,"
Ablaufexplained. "A writtennotice
(was sent) to all licensees who
were producing apparel of any stu-
dent-athlete."
And while vendors were using the
likeness of several student-athletes
on apparel, Ablauf said the viola-
tions largelyfocusedon apparel that

At its meeting last night, City

ordinance banning upholstered
furniture on porches citywide.
The ordinance - which could
fine violators up to,$1,000 -
dates back to 2004, when the

voting on a similar measure.
The council revisited the ordi-
nance in the wake of LeMas-

with complete support from the
Council, students expressed
opposition to the ban. Rackham

'U' joins partnership with aim
to promote information access

Open-Access pact
means 'U' will pay
faculty publishing
fees for articles
By MICHELE NAROV
Daily StaffReporter
As part of an initiative to pro-
mote scholarship and open access
to information, the University is

joining the Compact for Open-
Access Publishing Equity, accord-
ing to a press release distributed
yesterday.
The Compact for Open-Access
Publishing Equity is a group of
universities and research centers
committed to providing more
effective and economical meth-
ods of publishing journals.
By joining the effort, the Uni-
versity makes a commitment to
pay the publishing fees for arti-
cles written by its faculty to be

published on open-access jour-
nals - free online journals that
can be accessed by all users. The
new program will be run and
funded by the University Library.
The COPE solution - a result
of ongoing discussions within
the academic community - was
developed by Stuart Schieber,
professor and faculty director for
the office of Scholarly Communi-
cation at Harvard University.

Goldman spoke about Federal
Judge Royce Lamberth's August
2010 preliminary injunction,
which if it stays, will prohibit fed-
eral funding for the creation of

Though a 2008 proposal allows
the creation of stem cell lines in

Michigan, Goldman said that
without federal funding, many
University researchers will leave
the state to go to California, where
in 2004, voters passed a measure
that allows billions of dollars of

With 'Open Housing'
title, proponents
hope to make plan
more accessible
By KAITLIN WILLIAMS
Daily StaffReporter
Members of various student
organizations met last night to
discuss the future of a proposal to
offer gender-neutral housing in
residence halls and in the process

voted to change the name of the
policryto "open-housing."
In April, the University's Resi-
dence Halls Association passed a
resolution in favor of establishing
gender-neutral housing options at
the University. The Michigan Stu-
dent Assembly also passed a resolu-
tion in support of a gender-neutral
housing option in Dec. 2009.
Brendan Campbell, chair of the
University's chapter of the College
Democrats, said the stakeholders
in attendance - including repre-
sentatives from MSA, the Spec-
trum Center, the American Civil

Liberties Union, College Demo-
crats and RHA - voted to change
the name because it sounds more
accessible.
"I think if we change the name
now to 'Open Housing,' it gives us
more opportunity to really begin
the educationcampaign in advance
and re-establish what this means
on campus," Campbell said.

Horky, co-chair of the Spectrum

night's meeting are working on a
