In this http://www.artistshousemusic.org clip from an ABA 2007 Forum titled “Entertainment Law Litigation Review,” the panelists explain and discuss how the “right of publicity” for a performer’s image and legacy work in practice. They discuss in specific the battle over the will and postmortem rights of publicity for Marilyn Monroe, which have passed from hand to hand in a particularly confusing and controversial fashion since the icon’s 1962 death, and a case involving Patti Duke in which she sued a theater who dropped her from a cast for reasons the court found to be spurious but used her name to gain publicity.
