This release of liability may typically be required by a photo store or lab before they will make copies of wedding photographs, event photos etc.

Note: Strictly speaking, the photographer does not release copyright in the photos. The photographer retains ownership of the copyright, but license or authorize the client - and thereby the photo lab - the right to copy the photographs.
