Why do they say “expressed written consent” as opposed to “written consent” when talking about showing portions of broadcasts?

In: Other

In this case, express is another word for explicit; clearly stated.

Meaning, implicit written consent isn’t enough.

Doesn’t this just mean they actually said yes as opposed to implying consent?

The phrase is “**express** written consent”, where “express” means “explicit and unambiguous”. It just means that the consent was in writing, and was very clear and exact about what was being consented to.
