How far do intellectual property laws protect personality interests? This paper, first published in 2009 based on one presented in 2006 at Strathclyde University, Glasgow, examines copyright, trade mark and passing-off laws as they affect the protection of features such as the name, voice, image or other personal characteristics of individuals, and also touches on privacy rights. The focus is on English law, with the occasional comparative foray.
