Apparently David Schwimmer won't sign his Funko POP. However, they do have licenses to sell them, otherwise they would be sued left and right. It also shows on the back of the box (for example, they have the permission and own the rights to make these figures from WB for FRIENDS). Still, these actors are not getting paid any royalties, so some people don't want to sign them.

I think just printing a nude still is classless unless it's their only scene. Nude scene in a film is part of the art, printed as standalone image it's just po**ography
Im talking less about a nude scene and more like a Playboy or something to that effect.
They should always sign a playboy cover if at paid signing. I'll agree
What if you want just a photo from the spread signed? The cover is never nude.

My same standalone por* argument applies then. I just find it skeevy and classless to ask someone to sign over their own naked body unless that's literally all they're known for.

Vanna White won't sign anything related to the Playboy that she was on the cover. I believe it has to do with the fact that she had taken the photos prior to becoming famous and that the magazine purchased the photos from the photographer, who had the rights.

I haven't heard many horror stories of celebs refusing to sign specific items. By all right it's their choice to sign or not, but refusing to autograph merch (like pops! for example) or a photo from/dvd sleeve of a fans favorite show or film is ridiculous (especially if it's in a paid setting).
