    I don't see a problem with it at all , obviously these people wanted these plates personalised to attract attention to themselves or their business , and attention is what they're getting !!

    Public grounds does not mean you can take photos of anything you want. Take a photo of someones property from the street; you need a model release. Take a photo of someone on the street, need a model release. Which is why my form is in my camera bag.

    The reason you don't get in trouble with property is because quite frankly if you're taking a photo of it; alot of other people are doing it too and there are too many to deal with. Any posting of a photo of a person on the internet may be requested to be taken down pretty much must be complied with if the person in the photo asks.
    That would explain why you see press photographers running around with release papers all the time

    Well over here you generally don't need a release for stuff in public, obviously there are some exceptions like shots which could be considered personally humiliating, commercial use, indecency etc.

    Some guy was caught here a few years ago with a "shoe cam" at the Canadian National Exhibition. Security was pointed to a guy sticking his foot between womens legs. I don't know what happened to the guy though.

    Why don't they ask for it to not be published? They're idiots and they like the attention, or by the time they see it it's already published and they feel they cannot do anything. I have always been taught that you need to get these releases. As for the up the skirt images, was there any proof? I mean how did these people know that's what they were doing. I of course did not see the report so I don't know. But that is no doubt invasion of privacy and sexual harassment at the least.

    The paparazzi in my mind aren't photographers; they're just plain assholes and puts shame on the profession. However, the man/woman who gets the first shot of the Brangelina baby will be a millionaire.

    Its one thing to take photos, however once you get to the whole issue of using it commercially it becomes very mushy and somewhat unclear. As long as the image is taken from public grounds, in MOST situations this is legal. I say most because I know there is always 1 or 2 cases where this is found not true. There is no real fine line between what is legal and what is illegal, it usually depends on what end of the lens you are on.

    Bruno; I've seen that one as well, quite a few times. "XYYZATC" is also around often.

    Private census companies are used here by large companies (walmart) to see where people in a given area are from. They do that by taking your plate number and getting your location from the provincial gov't. They get a list of the first three digits of your postal code. There was an atcile on this issue in a local paper a few weeks ago.

    According to this summary of US law you can take photos of pretty much anything you like provided you are in a public place.

    How? If you have no proof the police can't do anything just based on one person's word...

    Tanner, I do respect you greatly for your work and your talent, but, I have to disagree.

    Only reason I do is because I saw a big ABC special on it about 6 months ago about how women were getting upset because people were taking pictures up their skirts on public sidewalks, and not getting in any trouble for it...

    Also, what about paparazi's...they take thousands upon thousands of pictures of celebrities in public places, then publish it in their magazines and then the celebrities get angry...if what you say is true, why not request that their picture not be published?

    You are 100% right. That man should go to jail, I would hate to think somebody like that walked the streets at night.

    I'm pretty sure it isn't illegal in the US, don't know about elsewhere...

    It's in plane view on publlc grounds...why not? That's the same argument that's being disputed now about people being able to take pictures up womens skirts if they're on a sidewalk or somewhere else public...basically you lose privacy when you're on public grounds.
