I don't use them. There is no doubt in their minds that they are being broadcast. Their participation is their consent.

Are the laws the same for Internet broadcasting as they are for broadcasting a telephone call on terrestrial radio? Who knows, but I doubt it.

Someone can always think of a reason to sue.

If they are under age... better get a release of some kind.

Participation on your program constitutes implied consent to use your guestís voice or likeness on the air. If you plan on using the content to sell a product or service beyond the scope of the originally intended broadcast you should speak with an attorney and perhaps have some releases on hand.


I am not a attorney . My opinions and knowledge concerning these matters are based on my personal experience and opinions only. My views and comments on the subject should not be taken as legal advice.

We use a release when ever we have a celebrity appear one our shows. We dont use it all the time but if we feel that someone might be a "problem" we make sure to have them sign it

There is a pretty slick iPad app called "Easy Forms". They fill out and sign, you take their picture, then send the form off.

Where can you find a generic release form to help, have an idea on how to create one that is specific for a show?

Sherasaurus, I'm not sure what you're asking. Are you saying you have an idea on how to create a release form or for how to create a show?

Back in the old days, it was not necessary to a guest's permission to appear on the air so long as the guest had reasonable notice that his conversation was being broadcast. If you stick a mic in someone's face, they probably realize you're recording their voice to broadcast. If a person calls into a telephone talk show, their act of calling a show that it putting callers on the air is consent.

There are exceptions to every rule. These are the ones I've seen.

It's always good to get someone to sign a release form for a couple reasons:

1) The person may not like how you put together the tracks and (depending how popular they are) tell you to take it down. Release forms let you set the conditions upon which they are releasing the audio/video to you.
2) If you get any advertising or other revenue from the video, you would need a "commercial license" to use the person's recording and not have to pay them. Releases usually have some clause saying they can use the recordings for "commercial purposes" royalty-free.

You can find general templates online and change some things to fit what you want the conditions to be. Or ask a lawyer/law student to help you out. Release forms serve to set expectations and can be persuasive to a court in lieu of privacy concerns as long as you stick to those expectations. Even without a release form, as long as you stick to expectations you should be fine.
