Indianapolis, IN – In an update to our blog last week, a bill in the Indiana General Assembly that would make changes to Indiana’s Right of Publicity Law, I.C. 32-36-1-8, passed the Indiana House, 85-7, on January 30. The bill is now before the Senate Committee on Public Policy. No hearing is scheduled at this time.
As we have previously blogged about, Indiana’s Right to Publicity law is considered one of the strongest in the world.
Practice Tip: Now that the bill has passed the Indiana House, it must pass the senate and be signed by Governor Daniels to become law. It looks like it is moving quickly enough that it could be enacted by the March 14 short session deadline.
