Right of publicity lawyer


Every person has a legal right to their own name, image, and likeness.  This is known as the right of publicity.  Now, with the advent and growth of artificial intelligence ("AI"), you have a legal right to extend this with your "deep fake" image (digital media manipulation).  This blog talks about this new technology. and how Bruce Willis is using it.

Bruce Willis is taking the "digital leap" to have a "digital twin."

Bruce Willis is an early adventurer willing to use his photos and image for commercial use using a company called "DeepCake."  This is a company that promises to make a "digital twin" of its clients in 4K and use that for commercial purposes.  They claim to work best with "A-List" celebrities.
Willis seems impressed with the technology and says it allows him to "go back in time" using his best images.  Learn more in this video.
