New York Right of Publicity Law: Reimagining Privacy and the First Amendment in the Digital Age

Date

February 22, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

 

The Cardozo Arts and Entertainment Law Journal invites you to attend our Spring Symposium on:

New York Right of Publicity Law: Reimagining Privacy and the First Amendment in the Digital Age

The New York State Assembly is currently considering Assembly Bill A08155, which would expand New York's right of publicity law by making it a property right that can be passed onto a namesake's heirs. Critics of the bill say it will chill speech by limiting the use of a namesake's name or likeness even after their death. Practitioners and academics will discuss the pros, cons, and potential alterations to the Bill.

2.0 transitional/non-transitional New York State CLE credits available in Areas of Professional Practice.
