Any intellectual property solicitors?
Hi my question is with regards ***** ***** celebrity pictures if I've paid for the royalty fees. I would like to use a picture of Kate Middleton, she's wearing a pair of earrings that inspired (it's not the actual brand or earrings) and so it's a picture conveying the message 'yeah like that'.
Hi do I assume you are still working on my question?
Thank you for your answer. But I'm also concerned regarding the Kate Middleton factor. Do I not need to ask her consent?
Many thanks in advance.
Under which circumstances in selling my earrings would I need the consent of the actual celebrity as I would like to be fully aware?
Thank you I believe this clarifies this particular case. I don't know the details or brand of the earrings she's wearing - I'm just promoting our brand showing the similarity with her style, and as such, I believe based on what you have explained that I only need the consent of the copyright owner.
Many thanks again.
