Personality and Image Rights

We have significant experience in managing and protecting the rights of celebrities and other well known individuals and groups of people.

Whilst there are no statutory personality or image rights in the UK, there are strategies which can be put in place to provide strong protection for names, images and other distinctive elements which are unique to a celebrity and we can advise on and implement these.

We can also assist with the protection and enforcement of personality and image rights in countries other than the UK, where these rights may be specifically protected by law.

Our expertise extends to dealing with counterfeits and unauthorised use of names and images, by challenging abusive domain name and company name registrations, and arranging for the take down of goods offered for sale over such websites as Amazon and eBay, as well as dealing with the unauthorised inclusion of a name or nickname for entries on such sites as Facebook and Twitter.

We work with solicitors in the UK and with suitable attorneys in other countries as appropriate to arrange for Customs Notices to be put in place so as to seize counterfeits and to control their movement across national borders.
