Every professional photographer knows about copyright, but many are not well versed in how the rights of privacy and publicity can have an effect on what you are paid, and when your client or subject can exert control over the images you create. Intertwined with these rights are model releases, and we will discuss how to draft a protective release and how recent advances in technology have changed the landscape for releases of all types.
About the ASMP Legal Clinic
ASMP is well aware that legal services can be a very expensive line item in a photographer’s budget, especially if legal counsel is required to enforce contracts and licensing agreements that may have been breached by clients or third parties. To assist members with broadening their legal knowledge, ASMP has launched this new member benefit – the ASMP Legal Clinic – to provide members with legal knowledge to assist them in navigating those issues that may arise in their day to day work. Instead of the hundreds of dollars an hour it costs to consult an attorney directly, these series of webinars will be a cost-effective way to get critical legal information. ASMP believes that the legal knowledge that will be conveyed in the clinics will assist members in adopting best practices in negotiations and agreements that may be able to help members avoid costly legal expenses in the future.
