New York Lawmakers Propose Amendments to Rights of Publicity Law

In the wake of two major rights of publicity cases, one concerning Marilyn Monroe and the other concerning Jimi Hendrix, a bill has been proposed in New York to extend publicity rights post-mortem. Currently, the New York rights of publicity statute does not apply post-mortem. Due to application of New York law, the two cases mentioned above were both defeats for the parties claiming the post-mortem rights.(Via PhotoAttorney)
