Wesley A. Zirkle
Most states grant to a person, either through statute or common law, a legal right to prevent the unauthorized commercial use of their name, image, or likeness. However, a series of poorly conceived cases around the country (including here in Indiana) have muddied the waters considerably for those who find themselves needing to understand the scope of Right of Publicity Law.
Keller Macaluso attorney, Wes Zirkle, has considerable experience with the Right of Publicity, starting his career representing celebrities and celebrity estates in cases of misappropriation, and later advising professional sports teams on use of name, image, and likeness in sponsorship and advertising programs.
Regardless of whether you are a person wanting to protect your publicity rights, or a company needing to understand the scope of the law, Wes possesses an understanding of Right of Publicity and has the practical business experience necessary to help you navigate the complex landscape of this often misunderstood area of law.
