Week Three Discussion: Intellectual Property Controversies

I decided to tackle the question of Should filmmakers and video games be able to realistically
depict real people without their permission? I initially thought to myself that using someones
likeness without their consent is wrong, but the more that I read into the issue I began to think
differently. Now I believe that this is fine under the correct circumstances.
Using someones likeness is fine since you would be using it under transformative properties in
terms of a parody. This follows the general idea of the First Amendment; Freedom of Speech, by
changing the general concept or idea of someone or a piece of work and using it to make their
work different. The argument of Electronic Arts vs Keller votes in favor of the EA since they are
using the likeliness of the players to enhance the overall product. Its just a smaller feature in
the grand scheme of how the video game is constructed.
While the video games on display are attempting to represent the actual product of NCAA
Football to its fullest potential, EA still classes it as transformative work. They argue that while
it is just a likeliness, it is still just an imitation that adds to the creative elements of the product.
Therefore, I vote in favor of the idea that entertainment can realistically depict real people
without their permission because it is not the actual thing. They arent using the source directly,
they are using their likeliness to generate something that is more or less inspired by their work
to create something original.
