I'm being pressured to do the doppelganger photos of your celebrity look-a-likes on facebook, many people  have used celeb. pics as their profile pic for the week, my question was is it ok to do this move?  Meaning would anything be wrong if we did?  Are we not allowed to do this, as a default pic? Just curious, thank you.

My friends have already done theirs, however I wanted to double-check on this photo issue, if anyone would possibly know.

It falls under fair use. It's not like you're trying to profit off likeness rights or intellectual property.


Right of publicity is a strange thing, recognized by perhaps two circuits and nobody else.  But, IrrX is right for now: non-commercial use is non-commercial.  For now.  Until my next plague hits the ground and you all end up looking like Miley Cyrus.
