Release for Use of Likeness Basics

When you need to use someone's image (for instance, a photograph or video) in a publication, like a newsletter, magazine or website, a Release for Use of Likeness gives you permission from the person in that image.

Use the Release for Use of Likeness document if:

  • You want to use someone's likeness for almost any purpose.
  • Someone wants to use your likeness.

A Release for Use of Likeness is an important way of legally protecting yourself; reproducing the likeness of someone without their permission may be a violation of that person's right, especially if the image is captured in a setting where they would expect privacy (this includes public spaces). In the case of celebrities, the use of likeness without consent may be a violation of trademark rights, so if it doubt, it is a good idea to seek permission with a Release for Use of Likeness. You can specify in the Release for Use of Likeness if this permission is is dependent on payment or not.
