Unauthorised Photographs on the Internet and Ancillary Privacy Issues: Discussion Paper
The Australian Privacy Commissioner has released a discussion paper on the privacy issues inherent in the posting of photos on the internet by third parties. (It was actually released in November 2005, but I only recently found it.) It suggests following the lead set by the Dutch copyright law that would prohibit the use of a photo if it is against the reasonable interests of the subject of the photo. Check it out: Unauthorised Photographs on the Internet and Ancillary Privacy Issues: Discussion Paper.
