Hey everybody, a newbie here.

I was at the international IT conference, to which I acquired all needed permissions from main organizer. Some shots are detailed clips for which I don't need Model Releases as nothing/no one can be recognized. But I have also made clips of speakers on the podium, in which they can identify themselves and now I'm struggling with the idea of contacting those speakers and asking them for MR for commercial use.

My question is, if they would not agree with clips being used on microstock agencies, can they ask me/agencies to take them down? Am I obligated to take them down?
Thanks in advance for any reaction!

it's quite different being clips of speakers. i would thread lightly and seek their approval.
if not, i would refrain to use those clips for stock.
but that's me. you have to use your judgement call as it could effect your future
connections to getting press credentials for other local events.
press credential ppl,organizers, know each other and spread a wide network.

for a few pennies, i would not risk it.

You also might want to ask yourself if they are clips that anyone would want to buy as stock.

I would think that the permissions given by the organizers would cover the editorial use of the images.   For commercial use, you would need the releases.
