Film Disclosure Act of 1992 - Amends the Lanham Act to require that each public exhibition of a materially altered motion picture (and each copy of such film offered to the public through sale or rental) bear a label which conspicuously discloses the fact of: (1) the film's material alteration from the form in which it was first released to the public; (2) the nature of such alteration; and (3) any objections raised by the artistic authors with reference to such alteration.
Delineates the compliance procedure for: (1) distributors or networks that propose to exploit a materially altered film; and (2) motion pictures intended for home use through either retail purchase or rental.
