What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Minnesota
My friends and I are making a video game for an Organization that rescues captive wildlife in hopes to promote their cause and bring in more donations. The game will be free, so no profits will be made, aside whatever donations people choose to make to the organization. This game includes the rescue stories of some of their animals (we have the permission from the organization) and some of them have come from businesses/organizations/facilities that have been shutdown. We would like to include the actual name of the places, but we are unsure of the legal issues with that. We are changing the names of all individuals and currently running businesses/organizations/facilities that the animals have come from, to ensure their privacy and to not affect their reputation, and to hopefully negate the legal issues that may come from using their names. Are we able to use the shutdown places' name? And what other legal issues may come about as far as this topic is concerned?
