Contracts Limerick of the Week: Borat

Borat We here at the Contracts Blog object to accusations that we are obsessed with "Borat." True, we did report on controversies relating to the release signed by participants in the film here, here, here and here. But hey, we were just doing our job.

You might feel that we are overdoing things a bit when we bring the "Borat" release (above left) into the classroom. But is it my fault that the authors of the statutory supplement I use chose to include the release in their collection of form contracts at the back of the book? For those of you without the time to read all the other posts, here is a summary of the case in Limerick form:

Doe v. One America Productions

Some guys who got drunk during "Borat"
Signed releases with terms they're now sore at.
Though they waived every right,
They sued claiming false light,
Giving students a claim they can roar at.
