: Also could I make a retail or telephone access tape for commercial sale of my celebrity voice impersonations, again , as long as I don't identify by name the celebrity I am impersonating?
Dear Mr. Bauer,
My gut says you can but my heart says that If I represented someone you impersonated and I wanted to give you a hard time I might suceed. My guess is that you are more safe than sorry. I' sure there is lots of law in this. It's just not in my head and I'm not going to do research to answer a quetion here.
