Linda Posted April 11, 2014 Share Posted April 11, 2014 I just noticed when I clicked on one of my celebrity photos that it shows it can be used as follows: Image # DWAN4D Small Business MarketingLarge Business Marketing All of my celebrity and random people images are restricted with 'no advertising use',display,mailing,etc. Years ago I was 2 seconds from being sued by a major band when my photo was used in an 'Advertorial' in Rolling Stone Magazine. Just noticed actress Katherine Heigl is suing for implied endorsement of her likeness as well. So wouldn't marketing be considered a form of advertising,implied endorsement? Marketing is generally to pitch a product or service and if you don't have a model relase you can not sell in this mode. https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/20140410165503-4988668-celebrities-suing-brands-for-a-tweet-katherine-heigl-vs-pharmacy-chain-duane-reade?trk=object-title Pretty concerned about this new use. I was in a discussion with a film studio publicist tonight and they suggested photogs be careful because many celebrities are getting fed up with uses that are far from editorial and feeling expolited. Alamy or other agencies were not named of course. L Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
