[Information] CPS Center: Digital Identity Study Group “Business and Identity” (March 7, 2024)

In cyberspace, the identity of entities in commercial transactions is also ensured by the technical implementation of security and authentication. However, daily identifications by consumers are based on visual, auditory, and other perceptual aspects. Furthermore, the explosion of technologies that mechanically generate information goods has led to a debate on the attribution of profits derived from the creation.
This symposium will examine the relationship between business and identity from a variety of perspectives, including these issues.

(3) Legal Protection against the Use of Identity in Avatars (16:00-17:30)
Invited Speaker: Jonathan Griffiths (Queen Mary University of London)
          (Simultaneous English-Japanese interpretation)
Chair: Tatsuyuki Suemune (Kinjo Gakuin University)

In English law, the right of publicity and the right of likeness are not recognized by case law, and publicity is partially protected by the tort of passing off.
We invite Professor Jonathan Griffiths, who has studied the protection of elements of personality by passing off, to give a lecture on the protection against the use of personal identity as an avatar.
