I have recently been asked to remove two photographs which showed members of the public at a signing session following one of Hayley's concerts. The people concerned considered it an invasion of their privacy.
With thanks to Dave for his research, I am not aware that publishing photographs of people taken in a public place, and provided there is no commercial gain, usually infringes any UK law. However, as with all laws, there are always exceptions and we must also be aware that the law varies from one country to another.
Most of Hayley's concerts are attended by many forum members and I therefore feel it is unnecessary to resort to the taking of photographs of other members of the public for use on the forum without their consent.
Following discussion with the other Moderators, I would therefore ask that all photographers be mindful of this when taking photographs of anyone at concert venues in which they are close enough to be identifiable. If an objection is raised to any particular photo, after careful consideration we may have to take appropriate action and delete it.
Due to copyright issues we must ask that photos containing a watermark from Getty Images or Wire Images must be displayed as a link only. These photo sites may pursue royalties or other measures so we are going to not take any chances.
