This article analyses the background to and latest developments in the case-law in the UK which deals with the commercial exploitation of an individual’s personality. It will consider whether the law of passing off in the UK could be extended beyond the traditional common law situations including false endorsement and false merchandising claims. The author concludes that although traditional common law remedies will evolve, a formal recognition of personality rights remains unlikely in the near future in the UK.
