My question involves defamation in the state of: Nevada
I have a strange and obscure situation I'm finding conflicting information on when trying to research the legality of.
I am in the field of competitive memorization (Memory palaces and mnemonics, that sort of thing). I want to create a course that helps to memorize large amounts of specific information, and a common way to do that involves converting information into more easily visualized and memorable images, such as having celebrities interact with mnemonic images in strange ways to trick your brain into remembering it.
The mnemonics I use to memorize information specifically involve visualizing nude celebrities. I want to create a book of drawings and paintings of these mnemonics as part of an educational course, but am concerned about whether or not doing so could leave me open to a lawsuit from the celebrities.
Is anything like this covered under a situation that would shield me from potential lawsuits, or would it be considered copyright infringement?
