Clearing Rights: What "Borat" Wrought
    When you film people you run the risk of breaching their rights such as privacy, publicity and defamation. See clips from actual law suits that tested the limits of these rights and the releases used by filmmakers. Does your release protect you from claims of people appearing in your film? When do you need a release? When do you NOT need a release? What terms must be in the release agreement? The documentary film, Borat taught us nothing begets lawsuits like success. With 23 claims leading to 10 lawsuits, the Borat release is one of the most tested contracts in film history. The panel will come armed with clips from Borat and other projects that triggered lawsuits from people caught on camera, including hidden cameras, with and without releases. The panel will discuss tips on how to protect filmmakers who swim in these treacherous waters.
