SAG-AFTRA New York Local President Rebecca Damon


Hi, my name is (name), and I live in (your town). I’m a (actor, broadcaster, recording artist, etc.) and I’m calling to voice my support for S 5959-B / A 5605-B, the right of publicity and right of privacy bill. I’m calling/writing to ask (name of your legislator) to support this legislation. 

As a SAG-AFTRA member, my name, my voice, and my image are how I make a living. It is for this reason that the majority of states in America recognize a right of publicity law. Without these laws, there is nothing to stop a content creator from cloning my voice or using my face on a product or in a pornographic work – without my permission.

Thank you!
