Why do I need to complete a Photo Image Release?



Does your material contain any photo/images of any people whose faces are recognizable? If yes, then all persons must sign this form which grants the state the legal right to reproduce, distribute, publicly display and create derivative works utilizing the image in perpetuity, without further monetary compensation.

Why do I need to complete a Copyright Release Form?

According to the CTCP Policy Manual, Chapter 300, section #03 "Educational and Media Materials, Incentive, and Promotional Items," all works developed with funds provided by the California Tobacco Tax Health Protection Act of 1988-Proposition 99 through the California Department of Public Health, Tobacco Control Program belong to the state. The Copyright Release Form is a document which you or your contracted graphic artists gives the state the legal right to reproduce, distribute, create derivative works from, publicly perform, and publicly display the material. In other words, the California Department of Public Health, Tobacco Control Program shall own the right to reproduce, distribute, publicly display and create derivative works utilizing the image in perpetuity, without further monetary compensation.

The Copyright Release Form must be signed by designers of the material for example graphic artists, writers, photographers, and artists involved in developing a material, even if they are in-house.
