LaFrance on Right of Publicity and False Endorsement: Armstrong v. Eagle Rock

Document Type

Response or Comment

Publication Date



Mary LaFrance analyzes Armstrong v. Eagle Rock Entertainment, which addressed the interrelationship of federal copyright law, the First Amendment, and federal and state law claims arising from the unauthorized commercial use of a person's name or likeness in connection with a copyrighted work. Although the district court’s perfunctory analysis has little persuasive value, it illuminates the gaps and inconsistencies in the area.
