Hot Topics in Right of Publicity Disputes

The parameter of rights in an individual’s persona—name, voice, likeness and other elements of an individual’s identity—is often a key consideration for creators of media content and their counsel. This presentation examines recurring legal issues and recent case law developments in disputes over such rights of publicity. Topics to be covered include: whether a right of publicity has been effectively assigned; how statute of limitation concerns can impact right of publicity litigation; which state’s or country’s right of publicity law applies; the interplay of publicity rights with federal Lanham Act claims individuals may pursue over unauthorized uses of their personas; and whether a defendant has raised a viable “transformative use” argument that will defeat an unauthorized use claim.
