James Dean Estate Twitter Suit

by Sammy Edmonds posted Feb 14 2014 3:10PM
An Indiana company is at the center of what could be a groundbreaking legal case involving the late actor James Dean.
 
Dean was born in Grant County and Fishers-based C-M-G Worldwide represents his estate. The issue at hand is whether or not people should be able to tweet in the name of deceased celebrities.
 
C-M-G Worldwide C-E-O Mark Roesler says his company is caught up in a legal battle with Twitter over who should own the handle @jamesdean.

The @jamesdean Twitter account has more than 8-thousand followers and is managed by an unknown owner. Roesler said he‘s spent more than a year trying to convince Twitter to shut down the account. Twitter says it doesn‘t have a username reservation policy.
