I was wondering if anyone could advise me on when I need to get a property release form signed and a model release signed. For an example, say I was on the coast of NY and taking a picture of the waterline, would I need a property release form for each of the buildings that can be recognized? Another example, say Im video taping a high school graduation, and wanting to sell copies of this tape to those that want to purchse it, would I need a model release form for every single graduate and participants? If this was on a public street, I wouldnt I believe since people give thier consent in a public place automatically, at leaset thats the way I understand the law to be, and since this is a private property, by the school board, would written permission from the person in charge of the land be enough or would I need written permision from each person on the tape or in the pictures? And another question, if the building im photographing is government, is it considered public or do I still need a property release form signed by the person in charge, whom ever that may be, hehe. For example, museums, libraries, town hall, etc. And a 2nd thought, say I get farmer A's permission to photograph the property, then they move and farmer B moves in, is it still legal fo rme to publish those property pictures? And according to the release forms Ive seen, you need a witness to sign as well, is there a guideline as in who you shoudlnt sign it? For example I go to this farmers house and get them to sign it, the wife and husband, one as the owner and one as a witness, is this a nono since they both could say neither signed it and I forged it, or should I get someone I know to sign it as well, or a random person around? My thinking is I will prob be alone whem im out shooting pictures. Thanks for your time.
