Gordon P. Firemark: "I think they’re fine for filmmakers everywhere, but I can only vouch for their full effect in the US. I’m not licensed anywhere else, and the US has some freedoms not found everywhere. 1st Amendment isn’t absolute, so I don’t wish to give an opinion beyond the borders of the US."
Gordon P. Firemark: "Mostly, yes, but I always advise checking with a local attorney, in case there are special issues in local law."
Make sure your documentary has all the proper legal paperwork.
"We felt confident starting production with all the release and legal forms necessary to protect our interests and mitigate any legal risk. Thank you to Gordon for these very helpful resources!"
