Events...

Recommended Posts

In my hometown Lisbon we have a monthly Event since more than 10 years ago, and when I came to live in Manaus back in 2012, I started an Amazonian series... already in its 34th edition.

Events are superb occasions to get together, share experiences and especially, to meet new geocachers from all over the world.

Let's see pictures from your Events. :)

I would like to ask, if you got permission from everyone on the picture to publisch there photo in a public forum?

I think, at least here in Germany you have to ask and get permission.

As you can see, everybody is looking (and smiling) to the camera... and yes, they know the picture will be uploaded to the cache listing. All this pictures belong to cache logs.

Wow! Interesting question. I had to look that one up. The Terms of Use vaguely reference your concern:

 

Upload, post, transmit or otherwise distribute any content that you do not have a right to under any law or under contractual or fiduciary relationship or for which you have not obtained required consent from third parties.

 

I'm not sure how it is in other parts of the world, although I would assume that it's somewhat similar, but generally speaking, there are three instances in which you have clear rights to a photo with your image in it, and would have fairly firm ground to have it removed from a website:

 

1. Invasion of privacy: In this instance, your picture is taken in a place where you can reasonably expect some privacy, let's say a bathroom for instance. Obviously the images taken by RA are in publicly accessible areas, and like he stated, were taken at an Event, where it's reasonable to assume that pictures would be downloaded to the Listing page.

 

2. Violation of rights of publicity: Pretty clear cut case of someone using your image to make money without your permission.

 

3. Defamation: Where someone uses your image to create a false impression or injure your reputation.

 

That being said, I have had people request that I not take their picture at Events or on hikes, and of course, I always comply with their wish. It's just the polite thing to do.

 

Edit to add, "people who live in glass houses...". Sure hope you got permission from everyone in this photo:

The way I try to handle permission and privacy concerns at events is to state up front that we're going to take a photo for the event cache page. Then we have people form a group, not just take pictures of people as they eat dinner. This gives people notice that the photos will be posted and the opportunity to opt out of joining the group if they don't want their picture online.

 

edit to add: the nice part about this is that it gives people who don't want to be in the photo the chance to take the photo, so they still get to participate in the experience while satisfying their need for privacy.

Germany has very strict privacy laws, so Moorhelmi's question does not seem out-of-line to me. Their photo that you linked to is different than what RA posted. The linked photo shows public performers, which German law seems to exempt. Also, most of the non-performers in the photo are not recognizable (backs of their heads), plus they are spectators and not the focus of the photo, which also seems to be exempt. In RA's photos, the cachers are the focus of the photo, so such a photo would require consent in Germany.
