A Model Release Form, also sometimes called a Model Release Agreement, is a document that is used when the image of a person, known as the "model", has been or will be used in photographs, videos, or other art and the artist would like to acquire the full legal rights to that image so it can be used in any way that they would like in the future.
The model, for the purposes of a Model Release Form, does not have to be a traditional "model", such as commercial model. The "model" can be anyone whose images were used in the art.
In a Model Release Form, the model "releases" the rights to the specific images that were used. This means that the model acknowledges and agrees that the artist can do anything that they would like with the art that contains the model's image, such as publish, republish, distribute, edit, change., etc. unless the model would specifically like to include certain restrictions. If so, there is a space for the model to describe what those restrictions would be.
The model also releases any claims that he or she may have on future issues that may arise, like a right of privacy claim or right of publicity.
When working with images of another person as an artist, a Model Release Form is very important to ensure that the artist has properly acquired and retained the rights needed for the art, whether it is commercial or otherwise.
How to use this document
This document can be used for an artist, such as a photographer, videographer, or other type of artist looking to legally get permission to use the images of a particular person in their work.
Ideally, this document should be signed and ready before any use of the model's images. Many artists have their models sign a release on the day that the shooting (for a photo or video) or art creation is taking place.
Here, it is possible to enter identifying information such as whether the details of each party and how the model's images will be used.
If the model is under 18 years old, a parent or guardian should review and sign the document.
After this document is filled out, it may be printed and signed by the model (or guardian). Then each party (including the artist) may keep a copy.
Model Release Forms in the Philippines may be affected by the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines, privacy laws, and general principles of contracts and obligations under the Civil Code of the Philippines.
