Who owns Emily?

but I will remain as the real Emily; the Emily who owns the high-art Emily, and the one who wrote this essay, too. She will continue to carve out control where she can find it.

Interesting essay by writer and model, Emily Ratajkowski, on authorized and unauthorized uses of her image, and how one’s image and name can quickly become a product and brands. With the rise of social media and the evisceration of truth and meaning (not just fake news), how much is under our control?

And, as she rightly points out, “it costs. A lot.” to hire lawyers to take care of these pesky matters.
