    Hi,
    Somebody recently made an offer on some of my photos. They are cosplay girls in Tokyo and they want to use them as part of a video display in a restaurant.
    MY question is...
    Do I have the right to licence these images to them or do I need permission from the subject of the photos. After all it is their faces
    Any advice appreciated
    Alan

    I believe you will need signed model releases from the subjects.

    Thanks for the reply. I was afraid that might be the case.

    How do you make or get a model release?
