    with out a release form, yes, you have grounds to sue. Usually at these events they have you sign them at the door. if you did, you're out of luck, if you didn't, you probably won't make it to the DVD.

    it all depends on where you are. I think if you are in public then they can use your stuff. Like poperatzi do with celebrity images. If your in public and decide to get naked its public domain. Not 100 % sure but sounds right.

    They would probably only need releases for the girls... because they show more skin. As for guys just being guys... there is something called public domain. If you are at a bar with your shirt off, acting like an ass, I have every right to film you and put you on YouTube and there wouldn't be a damn thing you could do about it. Unless you were showing off the goods, I do believe they can put you on film. However, I am not entirely sure on this.

    They only have to have permission if the person is showing nudity in public... If you are in a public place and they are filming, your image can be on film, and they have no obligation to have you sign a release form depending on which state you are from, but even then, in the stricter states, their only obligation would be to blur your face to protect your identity, check your local and state laws for that. But im sure he already knows what he can and cant do, hes been sued many times over the years. So im sure his ass is covered if you come after him, but if you are showing skin and did not sign a permission slip when you came and they didnt take a copy of your id, then you have a case. This is Amanda( the female half of the team), I model for extra income, and I have seen the releases and Im familiar with the regulations surrounding this type of industry.

    Joe Francis In The News Again After Offering Bribes To Prison Guards

    http://www.bittenandbound.com/2009/07/25/joe-francis-jailhouse-bribery-scheme-leads-to-arrests/

    Girls Gone Wild creator Joe Francis was behind bars in Reno back in 2007 on charges of federal income tax evasion. A recent investigation has turned up the fact that Francis received special treatment by jail-house employees in a bribery scheme. The revelation has caused all hell to break loose.

    Three Washoe County jail employees have been terminated and arrested for receiving gifts in exchange for favors. What favors? Longer time on the phone, protection from disciplinary action and the ability to have food brought in.

    The employees are former sheriff's Sgt Michon Mills, 39, sheriff's Deputy Ralph Hawkins, 41, and former inmate classification specialist Mary Boxx, 54. All three have been charged with 2 counts of accepting a bribe.

    The gifts were large; tickets to the Oakland Raiders games, a $4,500 Cartier watch, a $5,000 gift card to Sachs Fifth Avenue, $3,200 in cash, a big screen T.V., an entertainment system, plane tickets and the list goes on...

    How was Joe able to get all of these gifts funneled to the guards? Girls Gone Wild producer Aaron Weinstein was the delivery man.

    Weinstein, 45, was arrested in L.A. Friday for his part in the bribe scheme and charged with three bribery counts following a grand jury indictment in Reno on Friday. He faces up to 2 years behind bars plus a $250,000 fine if found guilty.

    Oddly, Joe appears to have escaped without any additional legal ramifications, thought he is still on the hook for his income tax woes, currently out on bail while awaiting trial.

    I saw that story and the first thing I thought was WOW this guy gets payed to film nekked chicks. I would do a little research about staying out of jail for doing that. Not to mention pay my taxes to keep doing it. Taxes suck but you dont pay them unless you are making money...
