California law protects your right to control the commercial use of your name, voice, signature, photograph, or likeness.
Our firm represents actors, models, professional athletes, and other public figures whose image or likeness were used for another party's commercial gain without permission. These rights are comparable to all persons, regardless of the level of celebrity, fame or notoriety.
Most right of publicity claims arise because the public use goes beyond the license agreement in terms of duration, geographic scope, and usage media (print, television, internet).
Individuals who prevail on a right of publicity claim can recover to following damages:
- monetary damages, which can include the defendant's profits from the use of the use of the persona
- mental or emotional distress damages
- punitive damages for willful violations
- statutory damages and attorneys' fees
