This is interesting, and something that would never have occurred to me. I've seen some of the ghost investigations on TV (reality TV I guess you'd call it) where they set up all the heat sensing equipment as well as having a psychic, a paranormal expert etc. They would definitely have paperwork and releases!

I would have never thought of the legal paperwork that would go along with that type of investigation. The article was very informative and even sparked an idea for a future story.

It's a bit like oral history, isn't it? You need to be aware of sensitivities and ownership and emotional responses to what you're doing and all these have potential legal implications.

If you ever come to Australia, factor in a visist to Canberra, which has so many ghosts that people run ghost tours. We even have a Prime Ministerial ghost.
