Talent Waiver and Release
Also Known As: Model release or waiver, guest release or waiver
Who Needs This: Podcaster, artist, maker, photographer—anyone who uses pictures, video, or audio of, involving, or related to someone else
Description: Do you have guests on your podcast? Do you take photos and use them for your own promotional purposes? Are you drawing, painting, sculpting, or otherwise using others’ likeness in your art? Do you take photos or videos of people modeling your products? Then you need a talent release form pronto. Make sure your guests, models, and others understand what you’ll do with the photos, videos, recordings, publications, and ads, your rights (all), and their rights (none).
