What is a MICRO-influencer and rights of publicity?

The term "Mirco-Influencer" is a term of art that may be covered under the laws governing "right of publicity". Generally, the “right of publicity” includes the right to control the conditions under which an individual’s “persona” may or may not be used for profit in commerce or for trade purposes. A micro influencer is someone with between 1,000 and 1,000,000 followers and is considered an expert in his or her respective field, such as cooking, travel, fashion, or fitness. Many are calling micro influencers the marketing force of the future due to their constant communication with their audience and close connection to their fanbase. Micro influencers are quickly becoming the go-to group for companies looking to brand their products to specific niches of consumers, knowing that the micro influencer will create a personal connection between themselves and the product.

understanding

There is no federal statute or common law governing the rights of publicity in the United States. Similar rights may be conferred by copyright and trademark laws. For example, a federal statute known as the Lanham Act may provide a negative right “to assert an interest in personal identity sufficient to prevent someone else from registering a trademark or service mark.”
