Patterico's Pontifications


Justin Levine on the Right of Publicity

Filed under: Law — Patterico @ 6:40 pm

Justin Levine, writing at the SoCalLawBlog, has this thought-provoking post arguing that California’s right of publicity is unconstitutional. He makes a good argument.

UPDATE: Eugene Volokh has more.


  1. Justin is posting on SoCalLawBlog again? *SOB*

  2. Please dry your tears Justene. I aint going anywhere.

    I posted on socallawblog this time because:

    1. I started this particular topic on that site eight months ago, and it fit so closely with that previous post that it just seemed to be a better thematic fit.

    2. For whatever reason, my computer was having admisitrative problems logging on to the calblog site today.

    3. I hadn’t posted to socallawblog for a while and wished to keep in the So Cal Lawyer’s good graces.

  3. Don’t apologize, Justin. Justene don’t own you.

  4. Just because I don’t own him doesn’t mean I can’t be sad. I was teasing though.

  5. Me too, on the teasing.

    Plus, Mrs. Patterico notes that — despite his apparent need to justify the decision forty different ways — Justin did not, in fact, apologize.

  6. Apparently, men and women apologize diferently. He apologized as a man would and Mrs. Patterico, as a woman, failed to recognize it.
