I have always used a generic model release for Rights Managed stuff. Plain, simple and't's always worked. But I see the micros are into this witnessing thing, wanting phone, email, rights to first born male child, etc.

Does anyone have a link to a model release thay will work for SS, IS, and DT?

I also notice that in some cases, like in the case of the iStock photo release which is pretty wordy, they seem to want to indenify IS in particular. Has anyone had a problem with stripping all the IS baloney and using it?

My generic release still works for RM stuff. Yes I have added this "Witness" thing. But will IS, SS, and DT bounce back the generic? The models I deal with are not really interested in signing 5 pieces of paper, plus I have older worthwhile shots (about 2 years back) that can be submitted where I would have to track down people to get additional sigs.

Any worthwhile comments welcome. Thanks!

Make a search in the forum:

Colleagues here have made generic model releases available for download.

I did the forum search. I found what I thought would be suitable in a post from FlemishDreams however the links no longer work. Thus the question.

Would also be interested in knowing what DT is taking (accepting). They bounced one from a frind of mine for "no email address". The model of 76 years old does not own a computer, nor does he want to.

There is another here:

Hmm.  We could have releases in the Knowledge Base.

That's a curious (and stupid) demand.  Has your friend contacted them about it?

I took the iStock release, changed it to generic, branded the top and have used it with approvals on all the big six sites.
