I would be too afraid of legal problems to publish a shot of two people whom I didn't know and whosereleaseI didn't have.

Any views on that???

Well, goodbye to this forum. Everyone seems to have something critical to say about everything...

Public areas where pictures are taken have no bearing on what you assume to be a problem. People publish photos of celebs all the time without permission in public places and nothing can be done about it.

Only if done in a private dwelling and sold for profit.

Read and put this to rest and how about educating your opinionated self.

The camera is awesome but understanding that this is a forum I find it to be alot to be desired.

Pana forum by far put this one to shame. I will post my Pentax elsewhere as this place has been of no value and just a bragfest.

Posted in another forum by tswen:



Any person on public ground under the Right to Publicity Act, can be photographed without their knowledge, as long as the picture is not being used for commerical purposes (a.k.a appropriation of name or likeness)

Exact Law: In the United States, the Right of Publicity is largely protected by state common or statutory law. Only about half the states have distinctly recognized a Right of Publicity. Of these, many do not recognize a right by that name but protect it as part of the Right of Privacy. The Restatement Second of Torts recognizes four types of invasions of privacy: intrusion, appropriation of name or likeness, unreasonable publicity and false light. See Restatement (Second) Of Torts §§ 652A - 652I. Under the Restatement's formulation, the invasion of the Right of Publicity is most similar to the unauthorized appropriation of one's name or likeness. See Restatement (Second) of Torts § 652C, comments a & b, illustrations 1 & 2.

In regards to whether it can be posted on the internet for anyone to see, here is a court case involving a picture being used in the media

According to Meetze v Associated Press, the right of privacy protects only the ordinary sensibilities of an individual and not super sensitiveness. A newspaper article about a newsworthy event including a picture of the plaintiff which was not reasonably calculated to embarrass or humiliate [the] plaintiff is not actionable. Meetze v Associated Press (1956) 230 SC 330, 95 SE2d 606.


Please note: The laws in Canada and Australia I have no idea on as far as candids, but , if it is truely a problem as the two have stated it makes all the better to live in a truly "free" country.

Celebs are public figures and therefore do not require releases.

I really don't know where you sir, get off on even suggesting that one's country is not "truly free" or otherwise. Nor do i understand why you want me to educate my opinionated self.

You quote a lot of clauses and that certainly doesn't impress me at all. The photograph of the above two individuals leaving a gallery is not newsworthy item nor are those two individuals people who happen to be in a crowd or group and therefore incidental to the overall photograph.

I ain't about to get into any arguments, I just don't like people trying to call me names or belittling me. Asking for opinions does not give you the right to stomp on others.
