I got an email a couple of weeks ago from a small printing company that is putting out a book of nude photography and asked for me to submit 2 b/w's. I did, and they liked the look of them and want to include them in the book. Today I got the email info packet and was reviewing the photographer's release.
I have a couple of questions about it, and was hoping to get feedback, understanding that you all are not lawyers, but there are many experienced photographers, so I'll take any advice with that in mind...
There's a section that reads,
I (name) grant permission to (name of company) to use (photo title(s)) taken by me for use on the (name of book) book publication, which includes these images on it's associated websites in low resolution form (name of website) in support of it's book, photographer credit will accompany each photo)
I hereby waive any right to inspect or approve the aforementioned use of the images as I submit them and they will make all reasonable effort to preserve the integrity of the image that I have entered"
So my question is, does the second paragraph give them permission far beyond useage in the book or advertising supporting the book?
