Protecting Athletes And Coaches From Exploitation
Many famous global athletes and coaches have turned to the Law Offices of Howard L. Jacobs for legal advice in an assortment of matters, including the unauthorized usage of their names and likenesses. The right of publicity is a right that protects athletes and celebrities against the unauthorized use of their name, image or likeness for commercial purposes.
Your name and likeness represent your identity as a unique person who happens to be an elite athlete. They must be protected, and you have the right to control the value of your name and likeness. When they are improperly used by others, we will help you pursue your legal rights – whether that includes enjoining others from using your name and likeness, compensating you for any improper use, or a combination of the two.
