| Yes, some do. Mine is very simple... by signing this document, you give
| up all rights and privileges granted you under all jurisdictions as a
| result of your assumed humanity ;)
| You are correct that a really inclusive one is several pages of fine
| print. I only use these when I am working on a commercial shoot with
| models who are paid to model and represent a specific scenario.
| My street releases are two paragraphs. They say that the person is of
| the legal age of majority to sign a contract (or can do so on behalf of
| a minor or an animal/pet in question). They say that for value
| considered and received (usually comprised of photographic prints) they
| relinquish rights to further compensation. That the image is property
| of the photographer who may use it in a commercial manner, including
| changing the name the person is depicted under, and also the image may
| be manipulated. It says that the terms within the document are
| transferable as part of the estate of the photographer.
| It's slightly fleshier, but not much more so.
