(Experience Hendrix PR) Since 1995, James “Al” Hendrix, the sole heir of Jimi Hendrix, and his close family members and their companies have been committed to preserving Jimi Hendrix’s musical, cultural and artistic legacy. Experience Hendrix has registered and continuously used trademarks of Jimi Hendrix’s name, his image, his signature and other logos in careful marketing of Jimi’s music, recordings, artistic properties and related merchandise throughout the world.
In 2005, a federal district court dismissed Experience Hendrix’s claim that the James Marshall Hendrix Foundation’s use of certain Jimi Hendrix personality rights had violated the Washington Personality Rights Act. The Court reasoned that a 1903 New York Civil Rights law, which does not recognize a celebrity’s posthumous personality rights, and not the Washington Act, should apply to the case. Yesterday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed that decision. While Experience Hendrix will request a rehearing, the Court’s decision today will not affect Experience Hendrix’s exclusive ownership of Jimi’s music and recordings and will not affect the trademarks that Experience Hendrix has used and will continue to use in maintaining and promoting Jimi’s legacy.
