And they can be a huge problem.
I have some fantastic footage of a band I've worked with, shot at a local club, but the owners of the club and the videographer won't let me post it anywhere or otherwise use it for promotional purposes or for sale, because there may be shots of people in the audience whose images we don't have written permission to use. They're worried about lawsuits and have apparently been bitten by this before.
So, to clear the rights to use it, someone needs to go through it frame by frame and edit out or get clearance from every audience member who might appear, which none of us have time to do.
Actually, they already did that editing on some of it, cutting out a few milliseconds here and there of music. Not too noticeable until I tried to sync up my clean Zoom audio to it, and found it going out of sync constantly because of the guts.
