Posting other people's pics
I was wondering what other people think about posting somebody elses pics. When it is OK and when it is not? Here in BF and other sites I've used, I've only posted pics of myself, my children or my wife. I've never posted a pic of anybody else because I always thought it was wrong to do so without their permission.
Recently I've found a group of old classmates online. They are posting lots of pics from our school days. Even tho not all classmates on the pics are online (therefore they have not given permission) I guess it is OK to post those. After all, they posed for the pics. My friends asked me to post the ones I have. I was reluctant at first but now I think is OK.
I also think it is OK to post pictures of an ex-wife/ex-husband, provided that: it is PG, you are not using it to trash talk the ex and it is a relationship that ended OK. I would never post a pic of an ex that hates my guts. Ex-Girlfriends, I don't know. If the relationship ended badly, I would not. But if it ended OK, as friends, maybe... depends. Family members... if I'm on the pic I guess is OK but still, I'm not sure.
I've met people that go by simpler rules. Some believe that if they took the photo and the people posed for it, they have the right to post it.
So when do you think it is OK to post a somebody's pics on the internetz? What's politically correct and what is not? What's legal and what's not?
