Publicity Rights and the Law - How do Celebrities protect their image?

1.00pm

Seminars

Public

'Celebrity' has never been more valuable - in the case of actors, pop stars or athletes, sponsorship and endorsement deals can often bring in more revenue than a celebrity's 'day job'. Yet, the rights of celebrities to their image have never been clearly stated in UK law - instead, they are covered by a tangled web of trade mark protection, the tort of passing off and contract law.

In this seminar, Dr. Dev Gangjee of Oxford University gives an overview of ongoing empirical research, and explores whether the current patchwork of protection is sufficient or whether is there a gap in the law that requires new legislation or more active judicial guidance.
