Does anyone know, legally, if it's okay to use a living celebrity in a piece of fiction?
I've written a short story, set in this world, in a very ordinary setting, but a famous person happens to be in it. There's no slander, it's a humorous piece, but I just wonder if there are any laws that say it's not okay to use a living famous person as a character.
Anyone have any ideas?
