Doing some sports photography...
and I need to find a waiver to give to people giving them the right to reproduce the disk of images that I give to them after we are settled up. ANyone have anything like that roughly that they would like to share?
What you are looking for is a copyright release. I have one that is in a pdf format for my photograhy business--but I did a quick search on the web and found a few more:
PS-- most professional photographers are VERY hesitant to give these releases to customers. In my business I charge them upfront for the ability to have the release. It it not exactly a tactic that all photographers agree on. The old school way was to charge a small amount upfront then a lot for each print. My opinin in this digital age is people what the ability to print images at home or where ever----the big problem with this is that if they take them to Walmart or a non-professional lab --is the print quality will vary and suffer. Which will be a direct reflection of your work. A risk but I always advise customers that purchase packages with a release about differences in printing. I suggest to customers that want to do it on their own to use www.mpix.com --they are easy to use---affordble and do a good job.
Below is another:
Permission to Print
I, NAME HERE (“Photographer”), give full permission to _______ (“Customer”) toprint the images on this disk. Customer has the right to adjust and print these photos as desired.
Photographer releases Customer from any copyright infringement.
Number of photos on this disk:
Date photos were taken:
All images are (c) copyright 2007 NAME HERE.
Like Scott said I almost never give out permission to copy my photos. I do realize that it happens and I don't do a lot to stop it but I don't give out permission for free. I will sometimes give out rights (even free rights) for specific use. Especially since they're contacting me to ask it proves to me they understand copyright laws to a degree. For example I shot an assignment for the paper I work for at a cross country meet. The picture than ran was of the kid who won. Well he is a senior and his family contacted me and asked for permission to use that picture in his senior sideshow they are going to run at his graduation party. I was happy to let them use it for free.
Now you didn't mention how much you were charging so that would obviously play into this as well. Just be careful when you give them a release that it is clear that you still own the pictures and are just giving them rights to reproduce them for personal (non commercial and non editorial) use.
