I thought this was an interesting topic because something similar is happening to celebrities on social networking sites like MySpace.com. These public figures log onto MySpace to create a page for themselves and find out that someone else has been impersonating them on the site for years. For public figures, whose economic net worth is closely tied to their public image, surely this sort of celebrity impersonation constitutes identity theft. And it seems that they have little legal recourse, which is a shame.
