Volokh on Right of Publicity


Eugene Volokh via Slate on why Pfc. Jessica Lynch, like Zelig, doesn’t own the rights to her own life.

Explain-o-joke: In Zelig, the main character sells the rights to his life story to a movie studio.  There’s a lawsuit and in the settlement, he only gets back the boring parts.
