For those times when you need to have something quick and easy that you can carry with you readily and that is likely to be signed with minimal resistance, here is the Pocket Release. This document does not provide nearly the level of assurance that the more intricate releases do, but it should provide at least a reasonable level of protection.
We do not recommend this release if the photos may be used in certain sensitive areas (see 21st Century Worries).
