Celebrity likeness...?

When did celebrity likeness become ok? Just curious… or was it always ok if they are dead?

Well, according to the following post, the answer seems to be that it’s not okay—unless it’s a caricature or parody.

  • In case you’re wondering, here’s the line: No curse words; explicit or sexual images or language; no plagiarized or pirated material, and no likenesses of public or private individuals (unless as caricatures or parodies… those are cool).

Seems like we’ve been seeing a bit of it lately… no one is doing anything about it…

I had this Bill Murray-inspired tee printed awhile back. If it’s a caricature/parody, you should be OK https://shirt.woot.com/offers/lost-in-illustration

The concept of “parody” is really tough for many people.
