"When you sign a modeling release, youre literally saying that you can represent anything. Youre a human emoji."

Good article. I personally wouldn't be a model, and I think I would probably advise my kids not to do it for these reasons too. I would have done it when I was younger and money was tight though which I guess is how that guy got in the situation. I've heard him talk about before.

Spot on! Everyone should read this before signing a model-release.

Interesting perspective.  He definitely got screwed on the in house company modeling where they outright lied to him.  But for the stock shoots, he clearly seems to have understood what stock is, and how it's used.  He is an intelligent guy, knows how to read and understand a release, and was happy for the money at the time.  Now he's wringing his hands over it years later?

None of those uses were even bad.  Seriously, reading the newspaper, or playing a doctor?  He posed doing those things!  As for the bisexual thing, if his friends don't know his sexual preference, they aren't very close friends.  If he was that upset he could have contacted HuffPo and told them they violated sensitive use clause and take it down.  On the RARE times its happened, I have never once had any company refuse to take down a sensitive use when asked.

This stuff is much ado about nothing.  My models love finding themselves in use!  Even the ones that had an occasional use they weren't too happy about still keep modeling for me.
