In Australia you can generally photograph anything or anyone in a public place without permission assuming that it isn't being used in an otherwise illegal way such as defamation and does not contain copyrighted material.[clarification needed]Furthermore photographing in a place where people would reasonably expect to be afforded privacy such as in a public restroom may also be illegal.
2. While one can generally photograph private property and the people within it if the photographer is not within the bounds of the private property and cannot be asked to stop or delete the images, the owner can restrict recording whilst the photographer is on the private property.[citation needed] Failure to comply with orders to stop recording on the private property is not a criminal offence although it may be against the terms or policy of entrance and the photographer may be asked to leave...
3. The photographer generally has full rights of the images meaning they can also publish it to something like social media without permission from the people in the image.

Six Ways that Photographers may Break UK Laws

6 hours ago

1. Damaging Bluebells. Let's get the bluebell thing out there first as it is that time of year. My feed is full of shoots involving them, including kids picking them or couples lying down in them.
2. The Client's Right to Privacy. You have photographed someone's wedding so you own the copyright. That means you can use them wherever you like right? Post them on your site, on your facebook, submit to blogs, create sample albums...
3. Second Shooter Images Don't Belong to You. Do you use a second shooter at weddings? You are paying them so those images are yours right? Wrong, just as the images that you take are automatically copyrighted to you, so are their images to them.
4. Adding Music to Slideshows. You make a fancy slideshow of the best images from a wedding and there right within Lightroom is a little button that asks you if you would like to add a track from your itunes.
5. Copying Another Photographer's Work. You see a great image shot by a photographer that you admire, so what's the harm in recreating it yourself? This area has been recently in the news thanks to Marvin Gaye's estate suing Sony over the song Blurred Lines and they quite literally can be for any artist including photographers.
6. Trespassing. Obviously, just don't trespass anyway but this can be another grey area for photography. In reality most space in the UK belongs to someone and once there is a commercial aspect to photography, then things change.
