Legal Issues in Street Photography

Woman taking photo street art

Location: Zoom 

Street photography has the potential to capture a variety of subjects—people, brands and logos, buildings, art—in public places. Whatever your style of street photography, several legal considerations are relevant to protect your artwork and avoid disputes. This class explores the basic concepts of copyright and trademark law, the rights of privacy and publicity, and the role of copyright licenses and releases in the commercial use of street photography.
