copyright in a public place/event
I've been shooting several historical re-enactments at places such as Colonial Willaimsburg and civil war battlefields.Now I'm under the impression that anyone who is dressing up and participating in these public events is...fair game. I don't need a model's release and their is no copyright infringement - even if I sell the images I created at the public event. If I'm wrong in this the how do I get 2,000 "actors" to stop and sign a model's release in the middle of a mock battle? And what if I miss one?
