    Hi Guys,

    Just wondering about the legality under Intellectual Property Law of Celebrity Lookalike adult websites where the images/videos are CGI (computer generated), and it is made clear that these are not in fact the celebrities, that it's all fake, and for entertainment purposes.

    Thanks in advance.

    Unless it was genuine parody, then you may have a defamation problem.
