- From the section Guernsey
A public consultation has begun on draft image rights laws for Guernsey.
The island's Intellectual Property Office has drafted the legislation, which would protect a persons right over use of their image.
The idea was hailed as a potential new industry for Guernsey, which could help diversify its economy.
John Ogier, the island's Registrar of Intellectual Property, said image rights were among the most valuable rights an individual could posses.
