Right of Publicity

Jennifer Rothman, Guest-Blogging About the Right of Publicity


I'm delighted to report that my friend (and former student) Prof. Jennifer Rothman (Loyola [L.A.] Law School) will be guest-blogging this coming week about the right of publicity. Jennifer has been writing extensively and for a long time about the right of publicity—as well as about intellectual property more generally, and about other matters—and she has just published an excellent new Harvard University Press book on the subject, The Right of Publicity: Privacy Reimagined for a Public World. (She also recently founded an excellent online resource for state-by-state legal research on the right of publicity, Rothman's Roadmap to the Right of Publicity.) I much look forward to Jennifer's posts, and you should, too!
