French term or phrase: attributs de la personnalité
A claim is being made for breach of licencing rights:

"XXX est master-licencié, à titre exclusif, des attributs de la personnalité de YYY"

YYY is a famous figure.

"Aux termes du contrat de master licence, XXX est la seule personne à disposer du droit de déposer des marques incluant le nom YYY".

I am sure there must be a correct way of referring to this but so far I have drawn a blank.

Thanks.
