Gilbert Lee will be speaking on the panel, "Video Games and the Right of Publicity," at the 2nd Annual Chicago Video Game Law Summit on Saturday, April 16, 2016.
This panel will explore the right of publicity and how it has been inconsistently applied to video games. As video game graphics become increasingly realistic and the use of personal likenesses in games becomes more prevalent, the issue of when personal likenesses can be used is a heated debate. Topics to be discussed include: recent litigation and an overview of seminal cases in the field.
