Clearance and privacy work for Kentucky basketball documentary

University of Kentucky basketball is a cherished landmark of the college sports landscape, known throughout the country as an elite program steeped in tradition. When a group of fans sought to make a documentary that captures the phenomenon of Kentucky basketball, as well as the dedication and passion of the fans, they turned to Dinsmore for counsel.

We worked with the filmmakers of “The Sixth Man” to advise on a number of intellectual property issues, including copyright infringement concerns relating to logos and likenesses shown in the documentary. We also advised the client on rights of publicity and fair use matters, as well as privacy issues, relating to interviews and footage used in the documentary.

With the help of Dinsmore, our client was able to clear any potential hurdles related to intellectual property, paving the way for a successful documentary.
