Appleby and Liberation Management apply for registration of model image rights
Appleby and Liberation Management have together filed an application for the registration of the personality and image rights of London-based Storm Models’ Megan Williams, who became the first fashion model to file an application for the registration of her image under Guernsey’s new 2012 Image Rights Law.
Williams, who spent her first few years in Guernsey and whose family is from the island, has taken advantage of the island’s new approach to image rights, which enables individuals, corporates and fictional characters to have their image legally registered and provides ownership of their associated image rights.
Michael Richards, associate and registered image rights agent at Appleby, said: ‘Williams’ image is integral to her work and is a growing source of her income as her career develops. In the light of the successful image protection case recently brought by singer Rihanna, it is increasingly important for famous people to protect their image and reputation.’
