Property Release from Manufacturer?


Recommended Posts

I have some stuffed plush horses I thought I would shoot and I am not clear on release.  

 

I have paid for these myself, so if there is no product logo, would I need a release from the manufacturer?

If the manufacturer would recognise them as their product, the answer is of course yes.

Commerical libraries seem to have different guideslines for objects: generic mass-produced objects not protected by trademark or copyright do not require a release.

 

"Recognizability" by the manufacturer is generally not a consideration.

 

Think about it: all man-made objects are made by somebody, so that somebody could recognize "their" object. How many generic still lifes with property releases you'd see on a G or C sites in their commercial collections?
