Do you take photos or create other content using the image or likeness of others (i.e. video, artwork, voice recordings…etc.)? Are you hosting an event where you will be taking video or photos of event attendees and using those images for promotional purposes? Before using any of those photos or videos, you may want to make sure your event attendees or photo subjects sign a photo/publicity release…just like this one.
A photo/publicity release grants you (the photographer or content producer) the right to use, publish or display a person’s image or likeness (in a video, photo or voice recording) for commercial profit or benefit. If you need that right, then you need this template. This template firmly establishes your ownership of any photos you take or any content you produce using the likeness of the person who signs the agreement. It also grants you, as owner of the content, the right to do whatever you want with the content without any further permission from the person whose image you may be using. Sounds great, right
