Image Rights

Image Rights, which can often be a collection of various intellectual properties relating to a well-known person, team or other body, can perhaps best be described as:

"The exclusive rights to control commercial use of a person's name, image and other identifying characteristics"

In the worlds of sport, entertainment and fashion, these Image Rights are often of significant value and their exploitation can generate a substantial proportion of the owner's income.

As a result, Image Rights management and structuring are important planning tools, particularly where exploitation can be undertaken in whole or in part outside of the jurisdiction of tax residence.

Guernsey is expected to enact its own intellectual property law in the second half of 2012, which will allow the registration of Image Rights in Guernsey.

Working with our associated company Collas Crill IP, we can offer a one-stop service to register, manage and protect intellectual property assets.
