Can I Trademark My Likeness?
You can absolutely trademark your likeness as long as you are using your likeness to market, brand, and sell your products or services. Essentially, trademarking your likeness is just like trademarking your name or a photo of you—you’ve built yourself in to a brand for your goods and services. Even better, because everyone’s likeness is different (unless you have an identical twin, doppelgänger, or clone out there), you should have no trouble trademarking your likeness so long as you can show the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) that your likeness is deeply associated with your brand of products or services.
