    I read this thread about a week ago and have been meaning to respond. Really ...how did u gringos allow yourselves to get locked inside this copyright jail ? It's disgusting. In mexico, as long as you film in public, there's no such thing as this. All you need is the person agreeing to be interviewed on film. And that's only if there's public display of material. There's no permits required unless your a major player like televisa or netflix. No location releases...nothing. And absolutely no permission required to film anything or person in public. Ya'll best start disobeying some laws or it'll only get worse. Soon you'll need a permit to even own a camera !
    btw...they say an average citizen in the usa breaks 3 laws a day. When will there be enough rules ?

    Couldn't agree more but it's the reality of production. Here, everyone sues everyone for everything, it's ridiculous and stupid. The more success and money you have, the more bottom feeders will try to screw you out of everything. It's more an indictment of how our current justice system has spun out of control. You have hungry lawyers, most of which are the dregs of the Earth, who have to drum up new business and new ways to generate billable hours. They turn this into making everyone into a victim, and those victims should sue everyone they can so the lawyers can make more money. If you drive down the 405 freeway through the heart of the westside of Los Angeles, you'll see billboards from bottom feeding lawyers about every 2-3 miles. "If you bought product so and so, you may be entitled to compensation". I get solicitations to join class action lawsuits and settlements at least once a week in the mail, sometimes more. Its a symptom of everything wrong with our society, being innovative and entrepreneurial is out, being a professional victim is in. Such an easier way to make a living than actually working.

    The lawyers don't decide cases. Judges and juries decide cases after they apply the existing law to the facts of each case. Each side is permitted to present evidence to support their positions.

    True, they don't decide cases. But they definitely decide to pursue and litigate an extraordinary amount of cases that never should have made it to court and they definitely take advantage of a system that needs to be reformed in the worst way.
    As far as existing laws, I live in California, which definitely has some of the worst, unjust and unconstitutional laws of any state in the union, made by some of the most corrupt career politicians/legislators in American history. How many other states
    have Senators who have been convicted for conspiracy to sell small arms to Asian terrorists? Our legislators here make the Tamany Hall and Chicago Alderman histories of political corruption seem almost quaint.

    But I digress, Yes, it is very important to find a good entertainment law attorney to vet any film or TV product you intend to sell or distribute. I know some great ones but they aren't cheap, they start at $500.00 an hour.
