Street laws (v. publishing)
Sorry, I know this has been done umpteen times before.
In the USA: (assuming it is NOT defamatory in any way) can I publish a street shot of someone without their permission? Printed and displayed, included in a book, posted online, etc...
I bring this up because I just heard of the Duclos case in Quebec, where the guy was sued for taking a street shot because the girl in the picture was laughed at by her friends. Basically, from what I've read, street photography in Quebec in illegal. This is a serious blow to my aspirations of doing street at a university in Montreal.
So yes, a quick concise answer will do. And if anybody is versed in Quebec photography law, your input would be appreciated too.
