In California, the statute has been expanded to also protect the use of one’s likeness or persona, which means that even if there is no picture of the person, it is still forbidden to use anything recognizable or a signature of that person without consent.

White claimed that the ad evoked her image, even though Samsung did not use her name or picture.
