  • Am I being stupid here or does the question of whether Guernsey has image rights only matter to the extent I want to give a licence for Guernsey...

    The fact that they acknowledge the existence of them surely doesn't mean you can provide for licensing of image rights in the EU... or have I missed the point.

  • ""image rights" means rights which relate to a person’s name, voice, signature, photograph, characteristics or likeness;

    isn't 'image right' just a species of copyright, and therefore only subject to the Berne three step test which is reproduced in the Copyright Directive? Though presumably the EU licensing rights would anyway have to work via the UK on a kind of quasi-contractual basis. (http://www.ifcfeed.com/guernsey-articles/intellectual-property.aspx)
    PS Don't try to type 'Guernsey TRIPS' into a search engine; it'll take you a long time to find what you're looking for...
