The UK has lagged behind other countries in establishing a legal framework for the protection of publicity rights, which has caused difficulty for media litigation lawyers at a loss as to how to protect the rights of their clients.

  • Provides in-depth analysis of publicity rights in the UK and elsewhere, not currently available
  • Compares the US and global position with that in the UK
  • Draws upon the experiences of well-known celebrities (for example, the Douglas/Zeta Jones wedding and Hello magazine dispute)
  • Offers in-depth examination of issues in a fast-growing area.
