Re: Can you ban your likenss from used as hologram?

I don't think I'd have to worry about that...

Such bans today would be based on someone profiting from the use of your image, right?

So if someone is selling time in the holodeck, or selling holodeck programs with your likeness, to "creepy pervs" I suppose one would have a case against the proprietor/designer.

Or if she were so inclined, a "famous hot chick" could license her image to a holodeck program designer, and make millions. I could imagine a few "celebrities" today doing that if they could...

If there's no money changing hands (there's that "money in the future" thing again), I don't see how you could stop it.
