    Feds ban energy drink company from using Joe Biden's likeness

    That rotting sack of oatmeal has been “a risk to the integrity of the office” every minute he has been there, since the minute he was installed in a rigged election.

    Biden has low energy therefore it makes no sense to put him on a energy drink.

    Biden is likely on a cocktail of narcotics including uppers before ant public appearances.

    It was a flagrant violation of Biden's personality rights.

    What's concerning is if it's true the Secret Service sent the letter instead of his lawyers and cited national security instead of personality rights.

    This may all have been a publicity stunt by the company, whether the letter is real or not.

    As a matter of Law.
    Though it may be a legal fiction in his case.

    It sure is. Most if not all states protect a person's right of publicity to prevent the commercial use of his likeness without permission. Some states even extend this protection to the estate of a deceased person (e.g. Elvis).

    Speaking of Elvis, Tennessee recently enacted the Ensuring Likeness Voice and Image Security (ELVIS) Act, to go into effect July 1. The goal of the act is to protect songwriters, performers, and music industry professionals' voices from unauthorized cloning with AI technology. Previously, Tennessee law did not explicitly include voice as a protected right, along with name, photograph, and likeness. Further, the law only protected such rights from unauthorized use in advertising. This new legislation amends the state's Personal Rights Protection Act of 1984 to add “voice” as a protected personal right and expands protection of such personal rights against all unauthorized uses.

    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    As a legal term, "personality" is basically an old fashioned way to say "personhood" . It's a separate thing from "likeness".

    Is there any precedent for this?
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Precedent for what? Using the likeness of a living person to decorate a product package? Sure. Using the likeness of a dead president? Sure. Using the likeness of a living, sitting president? Not that I know of, with or without permission.

    Before it was always considered an attempt to imply an endorsement. Biden being a president who is purely a joke, and whose endorsement means nothing to anyone, surely is unprecedented.

    No. Precedent for one of the departments of the Executive Branch sending a cease and desist letter over something like this and treating it as a matter of national security, rather than just a civil matter of the use of someone's likeness without their permission for commercial purposes.

    Biden demands compensation when his personality or image is used to enhance anyone other person or entity. If you don't believe me, just ask Hunter.
