Into image rights? Here's the call for articles for the JIPLP special 'image rights' issue!

The protection of one's own image, likeness or voice can be achieved through different regimes. 

Some countries recognize self-standing image/publicity rights, which can be enforced in different situations and even post mortem. Other countries do not have ad hoc rights, and protection can be obtained through a mix of other rights and remedies. So, for instance, copyright, trade marks, unfair competition, passing off, data protection/privacy, libel/defamation and new rights like the right to be forgotten might all be relevant.

At a time when the conversation around deepfakes has become so topical, models are accused of copyright infringement for posting images of themselves, and estates try to repress the unauthorized use of celebrities' image, the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (JIPLP) - which I have the honour and pleasure of co-editing - wishes to explore all these topics more in detail and in relation to different experiences and jurisdictions.

This is why it is launching a call for articles for a Special 'Image Rights' Issue that will be published in early 2020.

Interested authors are invited to submit articles in the range of 3,000-6,000 words on a topic of their choice relating to the protection of one's own image, likeness, voice, etc for consideration for publication in JIPLP.

Relevant articles must be submitted through the online portal, be in accordance with JIPLP house style, and carry the indication that they are for consideration for the special image rights issue.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, 16 September. No late submissions will be accepted.

Further details are available here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
