I'm in.  The model release covers it, right?

"The Premier License includes so-called "Sensitive Use" rights. Sensitive Uses are those uses that depict a person in a manner that a reasonable person might consider offensive, controversial or unflattering."

Legally, the model release covers it. If you have images of family members or friends or just don't want to deal with the hassle of a model that is pissed, you might want to opt out.

One of my models complained saying he was on an ad for sperm bank and threatened to ask a lawyer.  I explained him that that's what stock photo modeling is and he signed for it, but I didn't want him bothering me any further and made enough money already from his photos.  So, I asked him to pay me the modeling fee back and deleted all his images.

The model release is an agreement between you and the model.  The member/content agreement is between you and SS.

I know that of course.

Legally, model release should cover it, but I've heard instances of models complaining to Shutterstock and Shutterstock threatening contributors despite model signed the release.  Once models complain, we contributors can't win regardless of model release clearly signed by the models.
