Here's a question on the three P's. As a photographer for an aggressive sports photography site, I recently had someone threaten a lawsuit and had some questions as to where it would stand. The site: Completely free. Photos taken a public skate parks and ski resorts. Nothing ever sold for profit at all - the site is just something for my freetime. The issue: Pictures were posted on my site. Pictures were then used on another site (a public forum site). Someone made comments so I registered there to defend myself and it was blown out of context into something big. Being a public place, not making money off of anything in any way, shape, or form, I should be safe in posting - correct? It was threatened in the end, by the owner of the forum, to file suit on behalf of those on my site for using their pictures. I have no issues back home but happened to relocate and ... wow... it's a different world here. Everybody on my site in the past has appreciated it. I've gotten endless comments from parents, relatives, etc. about how nice it is to see their son/daughter/niece/nephew/grandchild in sports that otherwise wouldn't be photographed. Being a public place, their names being said out in the open, there not being any entry fees as it's a completely open and free skate park.... I don't see where they would have a case. The ones in this particular situation aren't minors either. Other than the main rider in the middle who started the whole issue, everybody else locally wants me to put their photos back up. I've been told by my assistant webmaster that I should still be safe and she's been a published writer, is a very well known graphic artist, and highly respected local webdesigner. .....other views/ideas of the situation...? btw: I've never refused to remove anybody at their request but then again, it's never been asked. If they want removed, it'll be done immediately.
