    This has nothing to do with copyright, and whether you take the image on a public or private place has no bearing in who owns the copyright of an image by default anyway.

    well, if you shoot a picture in a public place, the police cannot stop you because you've broken no law.

    and by default, the photographer who shot the picture, owns the copyright to the image, unless he is hired - then the person who paid the photographer owns usage rights to the image. unless specifically stated in a contract, the photographer would still hold rights to the images he created.

    this of course doesn't stand if the image is used with defamatory intentions, and if such, the subject can sue the photographer for defamation.

    please correct me if i'm wrong.

    Just a hypothetical example :

    What I took a photo of LKY in a public or even in a private function and used it in an adverstisement? I am not the official photographer. Do I need to obtain his permission proir using the ad? Because of his status such as a politician, etc, does it make any difference compared to a commoner as the TS's friend?

    Generally correct but there are situations where you might have broken the law.

    The rest of your post is roughly there but roughly not, I'd suggest you do a bit more reading up to understand the specific definitions of copyright, usage rights, and the other rights associated under copyright.

    The only point I was trying to make was in relation to your original statement,

    There is no link between copyright, and where the image was taken whether private or public.

    This is an advertisment, can it be taken as suggesting that the person in the photo endorses the company even if he's not? I guess it all depends on the context of the advert?

    that is the difference between an elite and a peasant... we have 2 different interpretation of law here...

    the diff here is, when LKY or an elite sue, they will win...
    while if the peasant sue, the peasant will lose...
    if the TS friend is just a peasant... i will say, go suck thumb as he can do nothing about it.

    hm, AIA is such a big company, if they dare to use ur fren photo, they should be prepare to know theres no error and by right in sg, they are authorized to use it imo. before doing such ads, they will actually seek advice from their contracts lawyers
    not to impress but shoot to express

    For all you know, that event might have been an AIA sponsored one and whatever rights/consents might have already been given to the organizers in the entry form for participants.
