Minecraftclothing – San Antonio Inverse T-shirt

The second issue is whether you may profit from use of a celebrity. Again the San Antonio Inverse T-shirt but I will buy this shirt and I will love this answer is not clear cut and, because we are now talking about state law, will vary depending on the jurisdiction in question. What we are talking about here is invasion of privacy, specifically the appropriation of name or likeness/ publicity rights (there is a difference between the two, but it’s not important for this discussion). Essentially, you can’t exploit another’s name or likeness without permission. Naturally, there are exceptions to that. The most salient exception is use of another’s name or likeness in a creative work. So if you want to merely slap a celeb’s pic on a shirt to make a quick buck, then you are going to run into problems. But if you want to use a picture of a celebrity (or anyone else) to create a new, creative, original (read, a lot like transformative from above) then you may do so.
