Hi all,

I have a question for those who have heard of the recent "Taster's Choice"
case in California, where a jury awarded some ungodly sum of money to a
model whose photo was used by Nestle though they had paid him for a shoot
intended for another of their products. What are the implications for a
model release if the purpose is stock photography? Does this make the
concept of stock photography a risky proposition?
