A bill was introduced in Minnesota's senate recently that was inspired by Prince's death which looked to restrict the use of someone's name and likeness after their death. The PRINCE act (Personal Rights in Names Can Endure) was put together with Prince's estate in mind and looked to protect a deceased individual's image, name, voice and signature for up to 50 years after they died. But now, apparently that won't be the case anymore as the bill has been pulled from Minnesota's legislature.

Apparently, there were concerns that the bill was being pushed forward too quickly, which would have unintended consequences in the longrun. Rep. Joe Hoppe, who introduced the bill previously, is said to have plans to return with a new bill next year.
