Federal Judge Rules For Defendant In Hendrix Right of Publicity Lawsuit
Here's a link to the recently decided Jimi Hendrix estate right of publicity case, already the subject of much discussion in the trades, in the practitioner literature, and in the blogosphere. The judge found for the defendant, Hendrixlicensing.com, ruling that a state statute could not create post-mortem rights of publicity for an individual who had not lived in the state; the statute would have conflicted with the law of the state in which the individual had lived (New York), which does not recognize post-mortem rights of publicity.
