Managing Partner Darin Klemchuk Published in Norwegian Newspaper


Klemchuk LLP, a leading intellectual property (IP), internet, technology, and business law firm, announces that Darin Klemchuk, managing partner, was quoted in a Norwegian newspaper weekend feature special edition, “VG HELG" regarding legal issues for Selfies. Klemchuk was interviewed and quoted on selfies and if there are laws in place that protect celebrities from being photographed in a selfie with a fan.

“Under American law, take a selfie with another person and then posting the photo on social media could violate the person’s right of privacy depending on the circumstances,” Klemchuk said in the article. “That act could also portray the person in a false light, which can be actionable. Finally, if the photograph is taken of a celebrity and the use of the photo is to promote a product, service, or company that could violate the person’s right of publicity.”

The article can be found on VG’s website. More articles and resources on Social Media law can be found at
