I signed nothing!
The creme with the likeness and signature of Maya Plisetskya on the packaging must not be sold and has to be taken from the market, as appears from the judgment of Moscow's Meshchansky Municipal Court of 20 December 2006. This judgment marks the first victory of Maya Plisetskaya and her lawyer Alexander Dobrovinsky in their dispute with the director of the Imperial Russian Ballet, Gediminas Taranda, who considers himself to be right in the legal sense to use her name.
The creme was put on the market by the company 'Healthy Biotechnologies' on the basis of a contract concluded between this company and Mr Taranda. But according to the records of the non-commercial Imperial Russian Ballet Foundation directed by him, the latter too is a 'non-commercial' person: He appears as artistic director and therefore is not entitled to conclude such kind of contracts.
Maya Plisetskaya denies to have assigned the right to use her name to Gediminas Taranda, both as a legal person acting on behalf of the Foundation and as a natural person.
The court has fully conceded that point to her. What matters now is to stop the use of her name as an advertisement for the Russian Imperial Ballet.
