The Right of Publicity is likely to experience continued evolution in 2018, primarily from Right of Publicity legislation and case law (often involving fascinating fact patterns). One could also observe that the U.S. now has a President who entered office with more Right of Publicity licensing than any prior elected official. In short, it is evident that the Right of Publicity will continue generating vigorous debate. The Right of Publicity is often misunderstood, in part because recognition of the Right of Publicity varies significantly from state to state and country to country.
