New York City
today’s “new media” and celebrity-obsessed
society, we are constantly bombarded with a supply of newsy information
about these famous figures. As celebrities become an
ever-greater part of our cultural vernacular and commercial entities aim
to monetize on their image through new media channels, misappropriation
and right of publicity claims have increased while the legal responses
to such claims have wavered.
With the proliferation of
monetized content and new media outlets, what rights do celebrities have
to control their image/reputation and benefit from the economic worth of
their brand? What constitutionally protected rights do the media and
commercial entities have to reference such celebrities?
In this CLE, we will discuss these issues and give a primer on the
evolving law of misappropriation and the right of
publicity. Panelists will chart the legal history, discuss key
developments, and share practical insights into this area.
