Abstract

This article highlights the recent trends and challenges of image rights protection in Europe, including the implications of Brexit on the protection of athletes against false endorsement. It is argued that the similarities between the treatments of image rights (recognising both economic and dignitary interests) may outweigh the existing traditional differences (the nature and justification for image rights) in the long term. It may be assumed that the law will tentatively recognise both economic and moral elements, helping to promote a more workable and enforceable harmonised international standard in this area.
