A lot of content does not require release forms in order to use it for commercial or editorial purposes. However, for content aimed at commercial publication and use, Model Releases are required in the cases where any individual person is depicted or individually recognizable, like an actor/actress, and this constitutes the main bulk of the footage in question.

Similarly, where an individually recognizable property constitutes the main content depicted, including trademarks, artworks, brands and logos, a Property Release is required.

In the event that release forms are needed, all submitters are required to make sure that they secure such releases in compliance with the Submitter Agreement, and are required to provide them on request. If you are in doubt, please contact us by sending an email to support[at]clipcanvas.com. Go here to download copies of general release forms.
