Yet Another Example of Why You Must Have A Model Release


Chipotle is being sued for the ridiculous amount of $2,237,633,000 dollars. All because a photographer moved forward with selling an image to them without having obtained a model release.

The woman came to this number after estimating Chipotle's revenue during the years the image was used. While this seems ridiculous and the amount is definitely laughable, she will almost certainly end up with a huge lump of money from this. Lesson learned. Get those release forms signed and make sure you have a legal professional look them over before selling anything.
