This query relates to buyers who purchase a license to use model released stock images from a stock agency. Obviously, the buyer is informed by the agency that the photo or clip featuring a person has a valid model release form. Though does the buyer ever see the model release? Is the buyer given a copy of the release? Or is it a case that they have no access to the release and rely on the trust of the agency that there is a release that was provided by the photographer?

The reason why I'm curious is I am considering trying to sell some stock directly with no agency involved. And I may have some images featuring myself and possibly other people (who I would normally need model release forms for.) I would inform any interested buyers that I have releases for the models. Though is it likely that they would demand to see the releases or download them? And if they go ahead with that, I'm wondering if there would be any disadvantages like the risk of identity theft etc.

They do not sell personal data of photographer and model(s). But a client can buy a MR copy with removed all sensitive data, check e,g, P5 client FAQ.

Ah yes I so I see:

"The provided release will have the full text of the agreement and signatures visible, but any identifying information about the models, artist, and witnesses will be obscured.

The fee to obtain a copy or a release is $50/$75 for each file. To request for a copy of a release, please contact us and provide us with the file IDs."

Very interesting.

When people work for clients and have to prove that models and media are cleared for commercial use. Just an easy way for P5 to get some extra profit. Except the "did you choose the right license?" fishing after licencing content.
