This year’s Kernochan Center symposium will focus on the right of publicity. This right has a complex history, and the patchwork of state laws currently in place do not provide clarity. In addition, many states which have had no such right, or a limited right, are now contemplating more extensive legislation in this area. Our full-day conference will look not only at the historical contours of the right of publicity, but also at its normative goals. Panels will focus on how such a right is best crafted, including what uses should be exempted from its scope, and delve into other areas of the law implicated by publicity and privacy statutes.
Lunch will be served. Registration is required. CLS students, faculty and staff are exempt from the registration fee.
