IMHO, it is still best to watermark your pictures in some ways that others cannot leech it off from you, and use it for certain things like promoting the gal as some business.... you know what I mean? With that said the watermarking stuff also acts as a form of protection for the person in the picture, as a mean to sue the person misusing it in any case. From most people's prospective, it is highly unlikely for you to get sued. First being that it costs money, second being that it takes time. Of course if your picture is demostrated in an artistic way or positive way (eg with themes like "Working Hard", "Fighting for Survival" of someone busy working etc), it is near to no chance that you get into trouble. Unless the person is too protective of him/herself..... Other pictures not advised to be posted are those of big names, like your PM, MM, SM, and people like policeman, security guard etc. Of course if it shows something like the themes mentioned above, not likely you get into trouble, but sometimes it is the person involved getting into trouble. :bsmilie:
Actually, spore does not have privacy law. that is why if you look into someone's house with a bino and see them naked, you can call the police and the naked ppl will be charged or cautioned, while nothing will happen to you. Unless the window is the toilet window.
So you can take pictures without worrying about the law, just as long as it is in public. The only thing is that you cannot use that picture for an ad. Then it is unlawful, you will then need a model release.
But you can use it for photo contests and win 10K, the person in the picture has got no right to any money. This is because the prize is for your skill and not for the persons likeness.
