Would like to get some advice and opinions from fellow a.netters.
First, some background information:
I have been filming airliners and making inflight videos for more than 25 years. I must admit I have amassed quite a collection of interesting and unique clips that I would like to share with other enthusiasts. Examples include video made at the old ATL terminal, video made of landing at LGA in an EA A300, landing at Kai Tak in an A330, plus much more. My plans are to burn my very best clips onto DVD and make it available for purchase at some of the airliner shows, such as the one in ATL in August.
It may seem overcautious to ask, but does anyone know if it is okay to show airline logos and/or property in this type of production without obtaining written permission from the airlines ?
I seriously doubt "Just Planes" and other producers contact every airline that is shown in their airport action DVDs. (However, if an airline is in a "World Air Routes" video, without question permission was granted.)
Any guidance anyone can provide is most appreciated !
