Image, Digitization and Rights [4:53 pm]

A good fight pending here: Newman backs US image rights bill

[Paul] Newman is among a group of actors backing a bill banning the use of a person’s image or voice without consent for up to 70 years after their death.

Newman, who lives in the state [of Connecticut], told a state assembly hearing that technology meant he could appear in “a whole movie” without his permission.

Opponents fear the bill will restrict filmmakers’ rights of expression.
