Legality and Waivers

Hope I have the right dpt for this ... Interesting question came up at a meeting of my church of which I'm doing a website. The site will be picture intensive

What are the legalities regarding "waivers" of pictures of the congregation. There's one parishioner who is pretty sticky about the picture thing - and told me flat out I needed a "waiver" of some kind to put anybody's picture on the site.

Any picture would be of the activities of the church and it's parish. The question is rather odd because most of the congregation know the pictures are bound for the website anyway.

Appreciate some direction on the matter. Thanks everyone. incidentally its http://www.allsaintsmelfort.ca

Im pretty sure that pictures taken in public of persons over 18 can be used without a waiver but im no lawyer. Anyone underage you're gonna need to notify the parents and get their permission. Its best to have some kind of signature but an oral agreement would work too.

Copyright laws are a bit complex, with a lot of gray area.

One point: the copyright holder is responsible for enforcing the copyright. So, unless you "blab," there is no way they know you have a live recording or not.

If you start trading the things, however, you open a can of worms. You may or may not be able to be sued, depending if the copyright was released for the recording or not. Assume that the group still holds the copyright, and can go after you (again, assuming the group hears of it).

"Free" doesn't matter to the law, in this case.

You don't need a waiver if you're on public grounds aka city property. You can take pictures from the city property of anyone. Regardless of age.

Their was a episode on tv on the local news. Some guy was video taping from his backyard to video tape the people that lived behind him. He videotaped a 13 year old girl changing. He then uploaded it to the internet. They took him to court and found that he didn't break any law.

You can take pictures or video tape from private property of your own or city property. You can video tape or take pictures of others houses from only your own private property or city property. You can't go onto someone else property.

Now, if you holding an event and you need to take pictures from people. You don't need to get waivers. The best legal advice I can say is to let everyone know in writing or by e-mail that you be taking pictures that will end up on the internet. If anyone does not want to be on the internet. Let her know.

You can take pictures of everyone but when you are putting the pictures on the website. Then you can filter out the pictures that you don't want to use or can't use.

If you look at sporting events. Alot of people end up being video tapped and put onto the internet. These people never get into legal trouble.

This isn't a copyright issue. Since you be taking pictures. You own the copyrights.

If you plan to use others pictures you need not a waiver. You need a license.

This advice is based on the U.S laws. I ain't no lawyer. I am a business student and took 8 business law classes all about copyrights, patents, trademarks, contracts, criminal law basic to intermediate understanding of criminal law and white collar criminal laws and financial laws.

Hi,

I would advice you to take pictures from public property. Taking pictures from website has copyright issues. It would include may legal problems.
