Effect of a Media Release Form

When someone signs a media release form, they consent to having their content appear in whatever media format the producer chooses, so long as it’s used within the scope of the agreement. They also give up certain legal rights and privileges. For instance, the subject will not be able to:

  • Demand additional compensation
  • Control how the media is used
  • Reject or approve the finished product
  • Sue for unauthorized use, copyright infringement, or privacy violations
