While most attorneys are at least roughly familiar with copyright and trademark law, far fewer are familiar with right of publicity law. 

This presentation will cover the right of publicity, which governs the right of an individual to control the commercial use of his or her name, likeness, and identity.  It will define the field; explain what distinguishes right of publicity from copyright, trademark, and other personality rights; briefly survey the rapidly-expanding, relevant case law; and provide practitioners with the information and tools necessary to spot and address right of publicity issues, particularly those raised by the rise of social media and online marketing.
