The invasion of privacy doctrine of misappropriation was recently expanded significantly in a decision by the Georgia Court of Appeals. In Shiho Seki v. Groupon, Inc., the court held that a business could maintain a claim for misappropriation of trade name, the first instance in which a Georgia court has allowed an entity other than an individual to pursue such a claim. 775 S.E. 2d 776 (Ga. Ct. App. 2015).
