  • The use of a real person\'s name for a character has legal guidelines for a reason: to spare any unintentional harm to that person.

    I seldom watch this show but when I saw this particular one I was a bit upset to see and hear that my son\'s name Jared Kale was used as a character, a questionable character who\'d presumably raped not one but two ladies. Our son was teased about it a lot. We\'re trying to instill within him respect for women and their issues. We are in the film industry and make documentaries and films and I know for a fact that the use a real person\'s name is not allowed without permission. Obviously the clearance department didn\'t work too hard on searching. I didn\'t catch the city and state that this character was from, I do know that also has bearing on legal use of a real person\'s name.
