Re: Question about copyright, models and the law...

I wouldn't waste my time getting model releases unless you plan on publishing in a magazine or a newspaper. If you are just publishing it on your own website it is not necessary.

Think about this: Paparazzi take photos of stars and get them published all the time. Did you ever hear of a star suing a paparazzi for simply publishing a photo of that star?

Millions of photographs are posted on the web everyday with images of people in them that have no model release. It is only some crazy lawyers that came up with the model release form.
