Elvis & Elvis impersonators

Article Tools

Elvis died in the state of Tennessee, where the post-mortem right of publicity is protected for a very long time.  This means that images of Elvis, his likeness, or any of his trademarks (i.e. TCB, “taking care of business”), are protected.  The Elvis estate prefers to control the use of the Elvis persona. 

We have in the past been able to offer Elvis related content in all license models, however this is no longer the case.  Elvis related imagery is no longer suitable for commercial use.  Elvis related imagery is only eligible as unreleased rights-managed and editorial use only content.
