Common defenses to California Right of publicity claims by Attorney Steve®

Posted by Steve Vondran | Mar 11, 2021 | 0 Comments

1. Statute of limitations

2. First amendment (privilege for matters in the public interest)

3. Waiver

4. Parody

5. Copyright pre-emotion

6. Incidental use (see Aliso v. Time Life books)

But before you just "flip a coin" and take your chances (it's always best to seek permission from the person), its always good to discuss all the facts of your case with entertainment counsel. I know its redundant, but if you want an answer you can rely on, you need to pony up and get the advice. best of luck!!
