Looks like iStock has a new model release that does not require a witness signature.
The policy of agencies in the past has been to accept model releases from other agencies.
I wonder if AS, SS etc. will accept the new "witness not required" release from Getty/iStock?

Also, will the other agencies drop "witnesses" from their future release requirements?

I doubt that will catch on very fast.

New release?

I accept that Biometric Data derived from the Content may be used by the Assigns for the purposes above (except for the purpose of unique identification) and I voluntarily and knowingly waive any statutory right or prohibition relating to my Biometric Data.

I think this is what that will be collecting:

Face recognition. Measures the unique patterns of a persons face by comparing and analyzing facial contours.

yes facial recognition usage may offend models more than anything else.

to my knowledge AS has always accepted without witness but I didn't try for years It may have changed
