Celebrity Shop Sues Over Lack of Publicity - LA Times
Celebrities dating for publicity
In the celebrity fashion world, the adage goes, it's not what you're wearing but who you are wearing. Now one of Hollywood's most celebrity-soaked boutiques is suing one of the town's top celebrity chroniclers, accusing it of the ultimate snub. The owner of Kitson, the Robertson Boulevard clothing store favored by young celebs such as Lindsay Lohan , Paris Hilton and Denise Richards, says that Us Weekly magazine is intentionally omitting any mention of the store in its issues because of a nasty legal feud. Kitson founder Fraser Ross claims the magazine reneged on a settlement in which it agreed not to disrupt the business or disparage the reputation of the store. The lawsuit alleges the magazine now refuses to name or show the Kitson brand in credits, captions or celebrity photographs.

In most states, you can be sued for using someone else's name, likeness, or other personal attributes without permission for an exploitative purpose. Usually, people run into trouble in this area when they use someone's name or photograph in a commercial setting, such as in advertising or other promotional activities. But, some states also prohibit use of another person's identity for the user's own personal benefit, whether or not the purpose is strictly commercial. There are two distinct legal claims that potentially apply to these kinds of unauthorized uses: 1 invasion of privacy through misappropriation of name or likeness "misappropriation" ; and 2 violation of the right of publicity. The "right of publicity" is the right of a person to control and make money from the commercial use of his or her identity.
