I came into a production only during tech as a crew chief, and didn't find out until a week in that a videographer was coming in and would be selling copies of the show to cast/crew who ordered. Not a union house, but they do bill themselves as "professional," and it seems suspect to me. I've been offered a chance to work with this group again, but I'm nervous about 1) whether this is really kosher based on the rights agreements they had to have signed to do the show (MTI I think) and 2) whether I should bring it up if I work for them again and how. Thanks.
