LOS ANGELES (Nov. 7, 2019) — SAG-AFTRA has been at the forefront of protecting our members’ image and voice rights for decades through strong contracts and strong legislation. The tools and technologies used by ill-intentioned people or companies for identity abuse and commercial misappropriation on the internet have grown more sophisticated, making it harder to stop. This abuse affects all of us. We stand behind Sandra Bullock and Ellen DeGeneres, whose lawsuit will help protect everyone from image theft, consumer fraud and deception.
SAG-AFTRA represents approximately 160,000 actors, announcers, broadcast journalists, dancers, DJs, news writers, news editors, program hosts, puppeteers, recording artists, singers, stunt performers, voiceover artists and other entertainment and media professionals. SAG-AFTRA members are the faces and voices that entertain and inform America and the world. A proud affiliate of the AFL-CIO, SAG-AFTRA has national offices in Los Angeles and New York and local offices nationwide representing members working together to secure the strongest protections for entertainment and media artists into the 21st century and beyond.
